Pierce St Renaissance Former Corner Store

1301 Pierce St

Opportunity to own a piece of history with this formally general store on Historic Pierce Street. Long-time owned by the Spencer family and just two homes down from Anne Spencer's own home, this building served as a gathering point for World War I recruits. Ota Benga once resided in this building when he came to stay at Anne Spencer's welcome. This building may be converted into a single family residence or into a duplex with two separate large units. The interior has been mostly gutted and a 200 Amp service installed, ready for renovation. Large windows, hardwood floors, and unique history that cannot be competed with make this a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a piece of Lynchburg's past.

The possibilities here are endless, but vision is necessary- beautiful bones, waiting to be brought back to life!
