Contact the Regional Office Nearest You

DHR maintains three regional preservation offices. They are located in Stephens City (Northern Region), Salem (Western Region), and in Richmond (Eastern Region).

Regional offices are the first point of contact in Virginia for anyone seeking to nominate properties to the state and national registers, carry out local architectural or archaeological surveys, put historic resources to work in local comprehensive plans, promote the benefits of historic preservation, teach with historic places, study threatened archaeological sites, or develop and maintain sound local preservation programs.

Each office offers technical information and guidance on the full range of DHR’s statewide programs; on the location and significance of historic, architectural, and archaeological resources in its region; and on incentives for good stewardship of historic buildings and sites.

For more information, contact the regional office nearest you.
