Monticello Arcade

208 East Plume Street, Norfolk, VA 23510 (757) 625-3502 Ext. 104

Designed by Neff & Thompson in the Beaux Arts Classical style, the Monticello Arcade was built in 1908 and is one of only two shopping arcades in Virginia. It features elaborate terra cotta decorative elements, and, at the time it was built, the center skylight was one of the country’s largest. Novelty products from around the world were sold here in “apartment” stores.
