Sandston Historic Area Survey

Henrico County has partnered with the Virginia Department of Historic Resources to undertake a historic resources survey of approximately 480 buildings in an area of Sandston recently determined to qualify for the National and State Registers of Historic Places. This determination by the Virginia Historic Review Board in June 2020 followed the completion of a report that can be found here. Beginning in mid-November 2020, staff from Hanbury Preservation Consulting began photographing and documenting buildings in Sandston. After this historic resource survey work was completed, a more detailed report on the area has been prepared for consideration by the State Review Board to add the Fairfield-Sandston Historic District to the National Register of Historic Places. The draft nomination report for the Fairfield-Sandston Historic District has been uploaded on the Department of Historic Resource’s website.

Listing in the Register does not in any way change what owners can do with their property. Rather, it brings recognition to an area and makes federal and state tax benefits for renovations available to property owners who choose to use them. The map below shows the area where the historic resources survey occurred and the boundaries for a potential National and State Historic district.

The purpose of a historic resources survey is to locate and identify properties within a specific geographic area. Listing in these Registers does not in any way change what an owner can do with their property. Rather, it brings recognition to an area and makes federal and state tax benefits for renovations available to property owners who choose to use them.

The Virginia Department of Historic Resources held a public information hearing on August 12, 2021, with property owners of the parcels within the boundary adjacent to the boundary. The presentation from that meeting can be viewed here.

An initial community meeting to discuss this project with local residents was held on Monday, Nov. 18, 2019. The presentation from that meeting can be viewed here.

A second public meeting to discuss this project with local residents was held on Thursday, Nov. 12, 2020. The presentation from that meeting can be viewed here.
