Standing at the northwest corner of Stuart Circle is the Stuart Court apartments. Stuart Corner and Stuart Court were both derived from Confederate General J.E.B. Stuart and its history dates back to 1924 with William Lawrence Bottomley as the architect. The statue is of General Stuart. He is mounted on his horse and facing east. The 15 1/2 tall bronze statue is mounted on a 7 1/2 foot pedestal which faces north. General Stuart was Major General, chief of cavalry, in the Army of Northern Virginia. Mortally wounded at the Battle of Yellow Tavern in 1864, he died in Richmond only a few blocks away from this monument.
Stuart Court today houses around 60 units and is the tallest building in the urban portion of Monument Avenue which stands ten stories high.
