The Forest Hill Historic Designation Committee is pleased to announce that the Department of Historic Resources Boards passed their nomination for historic designation this morning at their quarterly meeting. As of today, June 21, 2012, the 740 + properties listed as contributing properties within the boundaries indicated on the linked map are listed on the State Register of Historic Places and are eligible for state tax credits and other benefits which this nomination grants.
The Department of Historic Resources will forward the nomination to the National Park Service to be approved for listing on the National Register of Historic Places as well. In two months or less the NPS will notify the committee whether they have been listed or not on the National Register.
We are now the Forest Hill Historic District similar to other historic districts already listed in Richmond: Woodland Heights, Ginter Park, West of the Boulevard, the Fan, and Monument Avenue. We have the right to display a plaque indicating that our individual property is listed in the Forest Hill Historic District with the construction date of the house on the plaque. Look for more about Forest Hill Historic District plaques on this site in the near future.
Many thanks to all of the residents and the committee members who have worked to support this nomination.
