NRHP Reference Number


The Armitage Manufacturing Company building complex dates to 1900. The complex has been associated with two major industries significant to the industrial history of Richmond: building supplies and roofing paper, and corrugated cardboard container manufacturing, beginning with Armitage in 1900 and continuing with the Fibre Board Container Co. in 1916-1956. The Armitage building is a fine example of turn-of-the-20th-century heavy-timber construction and is the earliest known industrial design of the Richmond-based architectural firm of Noland & Baskervill (later, Baskervill & Son).
