In Richmond, the Springhill Historic District captures the 19th – and 20th-century history of settlement and industrial development along the south bank of the James River. The Springhill district arose as a street-car suburb beginning in the 1870s, although most its homes were constructed during the early decades of the 20th century and reflect popular styles of the era such as Craftsman, Colonial Revival, Bungalow and American Foursquare. The Springhill district was part of Chesterfield County until 1873, when it was annexed to the Town of Manchester. Residential expansion was tied to a boom in manufacturing, quarrying, and shipping in Manchester after the Civil War. As part of Manchester, Springhill was annexed to the City of Richmond in 1910. This district was listed under the Historic Residential Suburbs in the United States, 1830-1960, Multiple Property Documentation Form (MPD).
In 2016, additional documentation updating the original nomination with new research was approved by the National Park Service.
