The McConnell-Neve House in Charlottesville, near the grounds of the University of Virginia, is a fine example of the Victorian style. Its slender octagonal tower, steep roof, and irregular silhouette give it a touch of the Chateauesque style. The ca 1894 McConnell-Neve House was, at the time of its listing, in use as a rental property, having been divided into three apartments. The house appears to have been demolished in the mid-1980s, along with some neighboring buildings, and the site redeveloped into a much larger apartment complex.
The buildings and districts listed under the Charlottesville Multiple Resource Area nomination represent a cross section of all the city’s historic periods, from the founding of Charlottesville in the 1760s through the advent of the automobile and the impact it had on the city’s expansion. Also included are buildings that have played an important part in the history of Charlottesville’s black community. The McConnell-Neve House was listed in the registers under the Charlottesville MRA without a formal nomination document.
