1. 2916 Libby Terrace / Langstedt House Marker
Inscription.  This three-bay brick house was the home of Dr. Frederick H. Langstedt, a physician. It was built no later than 1871. The original house features a restrained Italianate cornice, a delicate iron porch, stone window lintels and unusual, oversized bricks. The original footprint has been enlarged over time. The front porch provides a wonderful view of the city skyline. The Langstedt family resided in the house until 1900. Subsequent residents were Mrs. Emma Schooler, a widow and Thomas E. Blake, who worked at a saloon at 214 E. Main Street. This house is listed as a contributing structure to the St. John's Church Historic District on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places.
