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.
Many properties listed in the registers are private dwellings and are not open to the public, however many are visible from the public right-of-way. Please be respectful of owner privacy.
