Welcome to Monument Avenue in Richmond, Virginia…
the first street in the United States to become a National Historic Landmark. This grand American avenue is a mixture of houses, stately apartments, commerical establishments and churches. Most of the approximately 250 structures were built between 1895 and 1925 during our country’s City Beautiful movement. During this time of relative prosperity, buildings were being designed in many architectural styles including Colonial Revival, Richardsonian FreeStyle, Arts and Crafts, Mediterranean and Gothic Revival. As one can see looking at the westward progression of the avenue, architects out-designed their collegues and and wealthy owners out-built their neighbors. The styles and sizes differ widely, but they harmoniously blend into a grand American avenue. Monument Avenue is a showcase for fine design and craftsmanship, but the grandness of its whole is due to city planning efforts of the era. Monument Avenue was named for the monumental statue of Robert E. Lee erected in 1890 and is now the site of six important public sculptures erected between 1890 and 1995. The strategic placement of the statues on a central axis, the directing of the city’s growth by planners and landowners, and the buildings by prosperous citizens and talented architects created this fine example of the grand avenue. Monument Avenue was placed on the National Registry of Historic Places in 1969 after the creation of the National Historic Preservation Act of 1966. In 1997 Monument Avenue was named a National Historic Landmark. (1) These acts set the stage for the preservation of the wonderful neighborhood we can still enjoy today.
