Inscription.  
Complex geometry of the Queen Anne style characterizes this once-suburban house built on the Old Greensboro Road for Andrew Jackson Montague.

Born near Lynchburg with family roots deep in Tidewater, Montague launched his career as a Danville attorney in 1885. Living here with his young family, the red-haired orator ran successfully as Virginia's Attorney General in 1897, setting the stage for his 191 election as the state's first Governor of the 20th century.

This progressive-era statesman later completed twelve terms in congress from 1912 until his death in 1937.
 
Erected by Danville Historical Society.
