Historic Richmond Foundation is the largest nonprofit group in Richmond that actively works to preserve the historic fabric of the city, while striving to maintain and create a "living museum" of Richmond’s architectural heritage.
Our preservationists seek to collaborate with the public and private sectors to promote the economic viability of restoration and rehabilitation. We maintain an extensive archive of architectural drawings, documents and photographs relating to historic Richmond structures, particularly regarding those structures of which the Foundation has held prior or current ownership.
