Summary
  • These drawings were removed from the office of the Carrington House Motel at 610 North Third Street in Richmond in 2000. This location and several others in the immediate vicinity were acquired by the Richmond Redevelopment and Housing Authority in connection with the expansion of nearby Third Street Bethel A. M. E. Church at 614 North Third St. W. A. Carter was the operator of the Carrington House Motel and a local entrepreneur. Carter may have been the architect of these designs, although research has not revealed his exact role. Among the structures documented in this collection are a "Town House" (1949), the Carrington House Motel (1959), a four-unit motel annex (1964), a six-family dwelling at 517-519 North Fifth St., a property at 506 West Marshall St., and a brick and frame dwelling at 2500 Brook Road for Mr. and Mrs. Spottswood W. Robinson, III
  • Part of the Carrington House Motel complex was the Tucker Cottage (built 1802), which was used as the motel office, and some of these drawings document the location and configuration of the Tucker Cottage at the time. The Carrington House Motel was demolished in 2000 and the Tucker Cottage was moved to another site in 2001
