Report on the Stewardship and Status of Virginia’s State-Owned Historic Properties, 2019–2021

Published May 15, 2019
Cover of 2019 State Stewardship ReportIn 2006, the General Assembly passed legislation mandating that the Department of Historic Resources draft two biennial reports, with the option that they might be combined, on the stewardship of state-owned historic properties. Consistent with prior reports, the 2019 report (link below) combines--
  • priority lists of sites eligible for listing on the Virginia Landmarks Register as well as those VLR sites listed or eligible that are most threatened with loss of historic integrity or functionality, and
  • a status report on historic properties previously identified in prior reports.
The report is supplemented with guidance and reference materials located on our State Stewardship web page. This year’s illustrated report highlights the restoration of the Virginia War Memorial Carillon in Richmond as well as the status of cemeteries on state-owned lands.
