I enjoy living in Suffolk, Virginia. I like the old buildings, the small town feel, the ability to go places without getting into a ton of traffic. I've been living here 3 1/2 years now and one of my favorite building is a yellow square three story with an interesting roof.
I didn't know anything about this building until I went on a bus tour of Suffolk, provided by the Visitor's Center. This house was built in 1885 for Edward Everett Holland.
Mr. Holland was mayor of Suffolk from 1885-1887. In 1908 he was elected state senator and in 1911 became a U. S. Representative in Congress. He died in 1941. And, the house was added to the National Register of Historical Places in 1985.
