Historic Areas

The Richmond region is a treasure trove of historic structures. Many of our historic areas are listed on the National and Virginia Landmarks Registers; however, the majority of historic structures in Richmond remain undocumented by architectural historians.

Within the City of Richmond, there are 45 National Register Historic Districts recognized by the United States Department of the Interior. The citizens of the City of Richmond have adopted 13 of these National Register Historic Districts as Local Old & Historic Districts.

The historic areas portion of HRF’s website is dedicated to providing residents and tourists alike with interesting facts and useful maps on Richmond’s historically significant districts, even if they have yet to be recognized by the National Park Service. It is our hope that this information will create clarification and encourage us all to better appreciate the history of Richmond’s built environment.
