We need your help to identify historic resources like buildings, neighborhoods, cemeteries and other places in South Richmond!
Historic Richmond is excited to be working with the Department of Historic Resources and the City of Richmond on a selective survey of historic resources (buildings, neighborhoods, and places) in South Richmond. This project will not result in listings on the Virginia Landmarks Register or National Register of Historic Places, nor will it restrict property owners in any way, but it will help to provide a better understanding of our history. Survey work will be done from the public right-of-way.
The focus of the survey is on previously unrecorded individual properties, potential districts in the 1942 and 1970 annex areas, resources in FEMA special flood hazard zones, resources and places associated with historically excluded communities, and cemeteries. We are especially interested in older (mid-19th century or earlier) buildings or outbuildings that may be enveloped by newer additions or any building or place that plays or played an important part in your community that may not be known or easily discernable to those outside the community.
If you know of any historic resources that should be surveyed, please let us know by inputting it into this super easy to use form.
The Department of Historic Resources will host a public information session next Tuesday, August 17th at 6:00pm. Join the public meeting here:
