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. Staff from Dovetail will be photographing buildings and documenting building features for a selection of properties in Sandston in November and December 2019. In some cases, they may seek your permission to enter your yard to view or photograph part of the outside of your home, and in some cases sheds or garages.
The purpose of a historic resources survey is to locate and identify properties within a specific geographic area. The information collected during the field survey may eventually be part of a document nominating the Sandston community to the National Register of Historic Places and the Virginia Landmarks Register. 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.
A community meeting to discuss this project with local residents was held on Monday, Nov. 18, 2019. The presentation from that meeting can be downloaded here.
