Church Hill Historic Plaques
The Church Hill Plaque Program offers research on your Church Hill historic house. Historic Richmond started the program in 2010 in partnership with the Church Hill Association to highlight the significance of the historic building stock in the neighborhood and the importance as it relates to the development of Richmond. Since its inception, Historic Richmond has worked with over 50 homeowners to provide information on their historic home and install their plaques.
Research includes date constructed, architectural style and notable features, first residents and occupations and if applicable significant events or persons. The staff of Historic Richmond begins researching in the City Directories, Historic Register, publications and Sanborn Maps. The cost of researching your historic home is $150 and will be credited toward your plaque purchase. Plaque fees vary in size and price.
The prices and size of the plaques are shown below:
Small 13 5/8 x 16 $300 + $9 tax = $309
Medium 18 x 16 $325 + $10.50 tax = $335.50
Large 18 x 23 $350 + $12 tax = $362
