St. John’s Mews Garden, South of Broad between 23rd and 24th
Year Built: 1965
District: St. John’s Church
The Mews was created in 1965 as a community garden through the collaboration of Historic Richmond and the Garden Club of Virginia. It includes a granite spall-paved alley, a cast—iron summer house and a brick wall with five panels of cast iron. Some of the cast iron was rescued from junk yards and demolished houses. In 2009, the Garden Club of Virginia donated funds to complete a restoration of the Mews. Historic Richmond still owns and maintains the Mews.
