NRHP Reference Number


The Forest Hill Historic District in Richmond arose as a trolley car suburb in an area just south of the James River and the city of Richmond’s historic central business district. One of several streetcar neighborhoods that arose in Richmond during the latter 19th and early 20th centuries, Forest Hill features a blend of house sizes, from the large and sprawling Victorian Queen Anne and Colonial Revival-style mansions on park-like lots to modest, small-scale, Craftsman-style bungalows and Tudor Revival dwellings on smaller lots, among other popular architectural styles.
