The Martha Jefferson neighborhood is a Charlottesville neighborhood around the old Martha Jefferson Hospital.

Historic district

In April 2010, the Martha Jefferson Neighborhood Association formally asked the city to designate the neighborhood as a historic district[1]. The district would include 125 structures along Locust, Lexington and Grove Avenues. During a meeting July 20, 2010, the Board of Architectural Review (BAR) unanimously voted to establish the Martha Jefferson Historic Conservation District. [2] The new designation calls for extra scrutiny any time a property owner wants to demolish a building or construct a new one.
