What does Historic Richmond do?

We are not a museum or a government agency. Historic Richmond is an organization dedicated to preserving and protecting the foundation of what makes Richmond unique, beautiful and unlike any other city on the planet. We are a 501(c)3 non-profit that works to encourage preservation, rehabilitation and revitalization in the city.


What is Quoit Club?

Traditionally, quoits was a game played during the 1820s and 1840s with steel rings and metal spikes–think 19th century horseshoes. Through social gatherings, tours, educational programs, and preservation projects, the Quoit Club supports Historic Richmond’s mission by engaging its members in caring about and for our distinctive built environment: past, present and future.
