The district continues to represent the commercial and institutional center of the African-American community in Martinsville as one of its oldest neighborhoods. The 42-acre district includes 116 historically contributing buildings with architecture reflective of a number of styles: Late Victorian, Queen Anne; Late 19th & 20th century Revivals, Colonial and Tudor; Late 19th & 20th century American Movement, Commercial, American Foursquare, Bungalow, and Craftsman; and Folk Victorian Vernacular. The properties date to between 1900-1957. The district was listed in both the Virginia Landmarks Register and National Register of Historic Places in 2007. The Fayette Area Historical Initiative (FAHI) is working to preserve the community and houses a museum.
