Report on the Stewardship and Status of Virginia’s State-Owned Historic Property, 2021–2023

Published

Report on the Stewardship and Status of Virginia’s State-Owned Historic Property, 2021–2023In 2006, the General Assembly passed legislation mandating that DHR draft two biennial reports, with the option that they might be combined, on the stewardship of state-owned historic properties. Consistent with prior reports, the 2021 report combines–

  • priority lists of sites eligible for listing on the Virginia Landmarks Register as well as those VLR sites listed or eligible that are most threatened with loss of historic integrity or functionality, and
  • a status report on historic properties previously identified in prior reports.

This year’s illustrated report highlights the efforts of Central State Hospital to preserve its archival records and memorialize it Unmarked Cemetery. For more information, visit our webpages devoted to the stewardship of state-owned property.
