Museum District Real Estate Analysis

The Museum District, alternately known as West of the Boulevard, or the Upper Fan, is a neighborhood in the city of Richmond, Virginia. It is anchored by the contiguous six-block tract of museums along the west side of Boulevard, including the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and the Virginia Historical Society, hence the name.

It is roughly bounded by the Boulevard on the east, I-195 on the west, Monument Avenue and Broad Street on the north, and Carytown on the south. Much of that is listed as a historic district on the National Register of Historic Places.

Parts of the area had been in active use as farmland into the late 19th century, and though part was notably used as a Civil War veteran’s home at that time, it was primarily developed between 1895 and 1940. It is largely populated with townhouses in styles from the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Though much of the district is residential, there are several schools, religious facilities, and other institutional uses throughout.
