The Duke Family Papers

For forty-seven years, Duke practiced law in offices adjacent to the Albemarle County Courthouse, at 1 Court Square (shown at left in a 1920 Sanborn Corporation Map). The firm of Duke, Duke and Gentry moved into a building at 5th and Jefferson in 1921, when the town claimed the space on which Duke's old offices set for use as a park. Duke's post-1921 offices are possibly those shown on the right. Each office was an easy walk from Duke's nearby home at 546 Park Street.
 
The probable locations of Duke's law offices are pre- and post-1921 are circled in yellow on each map.
