Linden Row is an extraordinary example of row houses. Originally it contained ten houses, but two houses at the east end were torn down to make room for an office building. Those remaining were saved by preservationist Mary Wingfield Scott, founder of Historic Richmond. Historic Richmond holds covenants to protect and maintain the architectural integrity of the buildings. The houses are now operated as a hotel—The Linden Row Inn. Former slave dwellings are located behind the hotel.
