Located on Capitol Square in Richmond, the George Washington Building is a fine example of early-20th-century high-style Beaux Arts-Renaissance skyscraper design. Completed in 1923 and renovated in 2010, the 12-story building was the Commonwealth’s first dedicated state office building. Also included within the George Washington Building’s register listed boundary is an early-20th-century water fountain that offers a focal point to the building’s main entrance.
