The city of Richmond was founded in 1742 as an expansion of the Tidewater area and the Jamestown settlement. From Patrick Henry’s famed “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” speech in historic Church Hill to the modern day Westward sprawl and development of the Short Pump area, Richmond has a proud history.
The 5 mile stretch that is Monument Avenue is the only street listed as a National Historic Landmark in America. Monument Ave is home to shrines for six native Virginians spanning the Commonwealth’s great history. From Robert E. Lee to Arthur Ashe, Monument Ave is a testament to the impact of Virginians on not just the area, but our nations’ history.
Most of Monument Avenue is located within the popular Fan District and the Museum District which is home to The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts (among others), restaurants and historic housing. This makes the area an attraction to tourists and locals. Nicknamed “The River City”, Richmond is blessed by the James River running directly through its city limits. Once known as a trade route for tobacco crops, the River has been transformed in recent years and is now a hotbed of activity. Hosting festivals such as nationally recognized “Dominion RiverRock”, The River is now one of the most attractive features of a city full of them.
