Inscription.  This classic brick three-bay townhouse was built c. 1886. The Italianate design features a delicate Eastlake porch. The city directory in 1886 lists Cyrus G. Bossieux of B. C. Bristow & Bro. as the first occupant. In 1889, Rev. T. P. Bell with the Foreign Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention resided in the house. It later became the home of Samuel B. Lucy of S. B. Lucy & Co. Sewing Machines. In 1895, Dr. R. A. Frayser, a physician, lived in the house and had his office here. At various times the house also had an additional residence known as 2715 A. John's Church Historic District on the Virginia Landmarks Register and the National Register of Historic Places.
