Maggie L. Walker National Historic SiteThis Italianate mansion was once the bustling home of pioneering African American entrepreneur Maggie Lena Walker (1864- 1934). Walker lived here for the final thirty years of her life and greatly expanded the home to accommodate four generations of her family. Walker's opulent home, and those of her successful neighbors, earned the 100 block of East Leigh Street the nickname "Quality Row." Walker's family continued to care for the house long after her death. Today, visitors can experience the home just as Walker intended it: a place of inspiration where all are welcome.
