Historic Sites of Richmond

Monuments, Memorials & the Capitol


Virginia State Capitol

Virginia State Capitol

As a major staple of Colonial America, Virginia features more than enough historic sites throughout the Old Dominion – especially in Richmond.

Your first stop is the Virginia State Capitol – built in 1785 and both a U.S. National Historic Landmark and found on the U.S. National Register of Historic Places. Richmond visitors are welcome from Monday through Saturday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. – and Sundays from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. Set in the Capitol District, the Capitol features free indoor and outdoor tours, taking visitors pass the Rotunda, the Old House, and the Thomas Jefferson Room – plus the Capitol Square grounds.

Set in eastern Richmond, the Richmond National Battlefield Park is a tribute to over 30 Civil War sites in a 770-acre area. Established as a U.S. National Battlefield Park in 1936, the site is a U.S. National Historic Landmark District, and listed on the historic register. Don’t miss Chimborazo Hospital, Drewry's Bluff, and the museum and visitor center in the Tredegar Iron Works.

Just an hour outside of central Richmond, the popular Colonial Williamsburg is a 300-acre U.S. National Historic Landmark District, also found on the historic register. Established in 1699, the historic district features the Raleigh Tavern, the Williamsburg Capitol, and the Governor's Palace. Check out the short film “The Story of a Patriot” at the visitor’s center, or catch historical reenactments throughout Williamsburg.

Other Richmond historical stops include the American Civil War Center at Historic Tredegar, Monument Avenue, and the famed St. John's Church. Enjoy the many historic sites of Richmond, and settle in for a night in Colonial America with Best Western hotels.
