Reveille (Richmond, Virginia)
Reveille is thought to be one of the oldest houses in Richmond, but the exact date for the house is unknown. However, as early as 1791, it was known as the "Old Brick House Tract." In 1929, plantings included large box specimens, English ivy, a rose vine, and jasmine in the front of house and plantings of peonies, iris, bleeding heart, tulips, candytuft, yellow alyssum with dark pansies on the side of the house. Garden features included paved walks with flat stones, shady trees, a rose garden, arbor and a picket fence. The main garden was seperated by a small stream and wild garden of phlox, columbine and primrose. At the back of the house a garden path, bordered by iris, lead out through a gate to an old apple tree.
Persons associated with the property include: Dr. R. A. Patterson (former owner, dates unknown); Mrs. E. M. Crutchfield (former owner, dates unknown); Reveille Methodist Church (former owner, dates unknown).
