Henrico County has hired Dovetail Cultural Resource Group to evaluate whether a portion of Sandston can qualify for listing in the National Register of Historic Places. Surveys of properties in the area were completed in December 2019 and a draft report (Preliminary Information Form) for the proposed Fairfield-Sandston Historic District is now available for review. This document can also be reviewed at the Sandston Public Library.
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.
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 meeting will be held on Monday, March 16, 2020 at 6:30 pm at the Sandston Memorial Recreation Center, 11 JB Finley Road to provide an update to interested persons.
