Richmond, Virginia History: Old City Hall


Photo: Tres Lacks Photo: Tres Lacks

Richmond's Old City Hall, the beautiful, massive, granite edifice at 1001 East Broad Street in Downtown Richmond, was not the city's original civic government building, as many residents may have come to believe. Opened in 1894 and eventually replaced in 1971 by the modern structure in use today, it was actually the city's second office. 

Tragic events led to the untimely and unusual, manual destruction of the original building, followed by the surprisingly, outstanding costs of various means to build the new one.

I lived in the Scott-Bocock house my junior year in college at VCU.  Elizabeth Bocock was still alive and using the "back" apartment.  I had forgotten about the massive Old City Hall building and your photo brought back memories of my time in Richmond.
