This house at 710 Bridge Road is a late Victorian frame house that commands one of the best views of Charleston. It was built in 1895 for Alvin D. McCorkle, a Charleston city judge, and is part of the Grosscup Historic District. Grosscup was once called Grandview because the homes had such a fine view of the Kanawha River and downtown Charleston.
