In Richmond, the Hermitage Road Warehouse Historic District is associated with the city’s industrial growth and history from 1913 through 1958. The district captures a cohesive group of early-to-mid-20th-century warehouse buildings exhibiting unadorned architecture and engineering trends of the period and representing some of the city’s most prominent businesses, including Export Leaf Tobacco (the purchasing arm of British American Tobacco), J. P. Taylor Co. (a subsidiary of Universal Leaf), Miller & Rhoads, and the A. H. Robins Company.

The Hermitage Road Warehouse Historic District Expansion was listed in the Virginia Landmarks Register in 2023, and the original district was updated with an expanded period of significance, now ending in 1965.
