Richmond Community Summary
Richmond Real Estate
Richmond is the state capital of Virginia. It is the only urban setting in the county with a class 3 and 4 rapids running through it. The James River rapids result from the city being on the Fall Line of Virginia where the elevated and rocky Piedmont region changes to the lower and more sedimentary Tidewater Region. The James River flows hard here from the elevation differential and the water being forced into channels. This situation has had many commercial and military advantages throughout history. It also happens to be beautiful and fun. You might see blue herons, bald eagles, ospreys, or deers while rafting on white water right in the middle of the city. There's bustling business and exciting nightlife in the city's many historical and vibrant neighborhoods: Carytown, Church Hill, Shockoe Bottom, and The Fan to name a few.
Richmond's geography made it an economic hub from way back. Being at the the fall line of the James River made it so ocean-faring ships couldn't travel any farther up the river. Tobacco was a huge cash crop up and down the river. Tobacco from up river had to be transported by smaller boats (batteaus) and transferred to ships at Richmond. Ships had to unload cargo here too. The city became a busy distribution hub. The rapids from the James were utilized to power flour mills and iron forges which created more commerce. Railways were built from this iron. This connected Richmond to other cities which sparked the distribution economy even more. The local, state, and federal governments are intertwined with the local economy. Banking and finance are huge here. It only figures: The Richmond branch of the Federal Reserve Bank holds the second largest assets of all 13 national branches. The Richmond branch covers Washington DC, Virginia, the Carolinas, Maryland, and most of West Virginia. The Federal Reserve building in downtown Richmond is the tallest building in Virginia (and nearly half of its floor space is underground). It was designed by Minoru Yamasaki who also designed the World Trade Center. Additionally, Capital One was founded here and is a big local employer. Law is big here too; 5 of the biggest law firms in the US are in the city. Dominion Resources offices, the utility company serving Virginia are located in the city. Of course it is. But it also provides electric for most of Virginia and North Carolina. It supplies all the natural gas for West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and eastern North Carolina. It has the biggest natural gas storage facility in the US and a gigantic market share. Other Fortune 500 companies are here. UPS Freight's corporate headquarters are in Richmond. DuPont has operations in the city's southside. MeadWestvaco, one of the biggest paper products companies in the nation, is in Richmond. MeadWestvaco also got into IT and developed the Lexis law database here in 1973. In 1994 they sold LexisNexis for $1.5 billion. Then, there's the Virginia Biotech Research Park in the middle of the city. It has 1.5 million square feet of space and 60 biotech companies. 12,000 professionals work there. The economic scenario in Richmond is mind-blowing.
Major interstates intersect in Richmond: I-64 interchanges with I-95, the main east coast corridor going south to Miami and north to New York, Washington DC, and Boston. I-64 goes southeast to the Norfolk-Virginia Beach area and west by northwest through Charlottesville ending at Staunton where it feeds into I-81 going southwest into Tennessee. I-64 intersects with the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway and Skyline drive. There's an Amtrak station downtown with convenient service to WashingtonDC, Philadelphia, New York, and Boston. Many freight trains run through Richmond which has the only triple crossing of railways in the country. Richmond has a Greyhound station and public buses running each day every 30 minutes from 6am to 11pm.
Richmond has great amenties! Go to Riverside Outfitters for a guided White Water raft excursion through the middle of the city. Enjoy some of the best smallmouth bass fishing on the east coast. Hike, bike, or climb trees at the James River Park System. Walk the pedestrian bridge over The James River to Belle Island. In 2012, Outside Magazine voted Richmond “Best River City in the US.”
Take in some tunes at 'Jammin on the James,' a free concert series on the river. Catch up with some blues, Jazz, rock or authentic Appalachian bluegrass at 'Music in the Park,' another free summer concert series on the beautiful Wilton Museum grounds. The annual Folk Fest on the James River's Brown's Island is a must see. Besides seeing wonderful authentic regional artists doing the bluegrass and solo acoustic music we'd expect, this festival takes the genre of folk music further to encompass music from the people of the global community. This can include indigenous music from as far away as Indonesia, Thailand, or Tasmania. Brown's Island has special events year round including this years (hopefully annual) RVA New Years Eve featuring beer trucks, food vendors, fire throwers, and a unique rising (as opposed to falling) New Years Ball powered by hydraulics. Even in the frigid temperatures, attendance was remarkable- Richmondites can really party.
Any day of the week you can keep up with local and national touring bands at The Camel or The National- a music venue inside an historic theater. If your musical tastes are on the wilder side, Strange Matter, on Grace Street near VCU, is the go-to place to experience punk, metal, and alternative performances by local, regional, and national artists.
And then there's the museums. The Virginia Museum of Fine Art has original masterpieces from different lands and eras. The Science Museum of Virginia has hands-on educational fun and a planetarium. Transport yourself to a different time and mentality through the Edgar Allen Poe Museum which displays pictures, relics, and verse focusing on Poe's time in Richmond. Or come cheer on Richmond's AA minor league baseball team at 'The Diamond.' They're an affiliate of the San Francisco Giants. You like trains? Check out the Old Dominion Rail Museum. The entertainment possibilities are overwhelming in Richmond City.
Richmond is banking. And banks are everywhere here. There's Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Union First Market Bank, Village Bank, SunTrust, and many more. All the big stores are here too: Kroger, Martin's, Food Lion, and Fresh Market. But there are also specialty stores in the trendy neighborhoods: Good Foods Grocery (organic groceries at Stony Point), Ellwood Thompson's (organic gourmet groceries in Carytown), and Camden's Dogtown Market (groceries with a great lunch counter in Manchester). High end urban fashion is available at Stony Point Fashion Park with stores like Saks Fifth Avenue, Anthropologie, Louis Vuitton, Dillards and Cole Haan. Then, there's Regency Square Mall with over 100 stores. The Shops at Willow Lawn is a partially outdoor mall in the West End. There are eclectic boutiques and restaurants in stylish neighborhoods like Carytown, the Fan, and Shockoe Bottom.
Richmond Public Schools has 8 high schools. Three of them have been given medals by The US News High School Report. Richmond Community High School ranked #11 statewide and #243 nationwide. Open Pine High School ranked #17 statewide and # 362 nation-wide. There are also 316 private schools in Richmond. Richmond University was ranked one of the top up-and-coming universities in the nation by US News.. Virginia Commonwealth University has been ranked extremely high nationally by US News.
History embodies Richmond. Leading into the American Revolutionary War, Patrick Henry gave his famous "Give me liberty or give me death" speech at St. John's Church in what is now Church Hill. In 1779, Thomas Jefferson delivered his 'Virginia Statute For Religious Freedom' in Richmond. In 1780, the state capital was moved from Williamsburg to Richmond. Benedict Arnold's troops burned Richmond in 1781. Governor Thomas Jefferson had to flee while the Virginia Militia saved Richmond. In 1788 Thomas Jefferson erected the State Capitol.
The Powhatan tribe had its capital where Richmond is today. English from Jamestown tried to settle in the area but were deterred and abandoned the idea. The native tribes were not going to let the English take over without a fight. John Rolfe grew a sweet tobacco in the Tidewater area around Richmond and generated a lot of commerce. This re-sparked attention to the area from the English colonists. In 1646, Fort Charles was built at the Fall Line of the James River. The colonist's exploration stopped where they couldn't proceed upriver any farther. The fort was set up to defend the colonists downriver in Jamestown from “wild elements.” In 1737, the outpost was named Richmond because it reminded settlers of the view from Richmond Hill, England of the Thames River. Richmond became an incorporated town in 1742. Trade steadily grew in Richmond, Virginia because of the docks built at its intersection with the Fall Line and the James River.
After the American Revolution, Richmond was still going strong as a river transport hub. It became a vital manufacturing site because mills were supplied power from the James River falls. Virginia seceded from the nation in 1861 when the Union attacked Fort Sumter in South Carolina. They soon joined the Confederacy. The capital of the Confederacy moved from Montgomery, Alabama to Richmond, Virginia during the Civil War. The main reason for this move was the iron being produced in Richmond (Tredegar Iron Works) to fabricate artillery and the railroad network that could transport war supplies. The Confederate Congress shared the Virginia State Capitol with the Virginia General Assembly. After the Civil War, Richmond was torn from battle but quickly got back on its feet.
