Richmond boasts a long, rich history--early-17th-century English exploration, the 18th-century economic and philosophical road to the American Revolution, the center of the domestic slave trade in the 19th century, and the capital of the ConfederateMoreRichmond boasts a long, rich history--early-17th-century English exploration, the 18th-century economic and philosophical road to the American Revolution, the center of the domestic slave trade in the 19th century, and the capital of the Confederate States of America during the Civil War. Much of Richmonds history reflects a national history, and its important landmarks span several centuries, ranging from historic cemeteries to iconic buildings to grand-scale monuments.

While these landmarks of national significance are a great draw for visitors, many of the citys lesser-known landmarks are a great source of local pride and provide a strong sense of place for Richmond natives and residents. Utilizing the historic prints, photographs, and documents collection of the Library of Virginia, Richmond Landmarks explores some of the most iconic landmarks of the citys social and cultural history.
