RICHMOND AREA RESEARCH GUIDE: Richmond Architecture/Buildings

Links and resources about the Richmond area, including local government, history, culture, etc.

Finding Historical Information about Local Architecture/Buildings:

Many of the resources listed here are Internet sites that can help find background information on local architecture and buildings.  You may have to use many of the resources because no one source provides you with enough information about your individual building.

Also try a Google search for the name of a specific building-- this can help to give you the basics as to time, place, etc...Wikipedia may also help with very beginning background information, but do NOT stop there...that's just the beginning...
