Richmond Old City Hall

Richmond, VA
  • This Gothic Revival building was designed by architect Elijah E. Myers.

Located on a full city block overlooking Virginia’s Capitol Square, this historic building opened circa 1895 and served as Richmond’s city hall until the 1970s. Presently an office building, the space will continue in its current use after renovation and restoration work is complete. The project will provide modernized mechanical systems while maintaining the historic character of the building.
