About Church Hill

Church Hill is the historical district of Richmond. While there are historical elements found in most other communities, the vast majority of Church Hill dates back to the early beginnings of the city. This makes for an interesting and unique living opportunity for Richmonders. Church Hill is more of a living museum than a typical residential neighborhood. Residents and tourists love walking down the cobblestone streets, grabbing coffee at a café, and relaxing in one of the parks.

Around Church Hill

The Church Hill community itself has an interesting shape. It circles Downtown to the north as it follows along I-95. East Broad Street makes up part of the southern portion of the neighborhood as it curves around Stony Run Road. Living in a more centralized location is ideal as this moves residents away from the major streets and interstate. Several elementary schools are located towards the center (including George Mason and Chimborazo). Houses northeast of M Street are larger with more property than those to the southwest. Due to this, the exact location someone calls home may just depend on how much square footage and land is desired.

Most of the restaurants are located Downtown to the west. However, there are a handful of eating opportunities in Church Hill proper. The Hill Cafe and Anthony's on the Hill located on Broad Street are two great options. Inner City Blues is a popular place as well, serving up Carolina-style BBQ off of 9 Mile Road. There are also several locally owned restaurants along 23rd Street and Jefferson Avenue, including some of the most innovative meals Richmond has to offer.

Professionals call the southern portion of the neighborhood home, which contains mostly condominiums and townhomes. The northern section of the neighborhood has the area's selection of single-family homes. There are also several hospitals and medical related buildings to the north. Church Hill also has lots of green space, including Ethel Bailey Furman Park, which includes a playground, baseball diamond, and tennis courts.

The Roosevelt is one of the most popular and well-known restaurants for a Friday night dinner. It serves Southern favorites while producing its own selection of craft cocktails. Other drinks are available as well, but the customized, unique cocktails are the staple of the restaurant. Alamo BBQ just a few blocks down and is another favorite for something a little more laid back. Most entertainment takes place immediately to the west in Downtown, although the Robinson Theater Community Arts Center puts on the occasional production.

A typical Sunday may revolve around visiting one of the historic churches in the morning (the Holy Rosary Catholic Church is located in Church Hill). Alternatively, residents can enjoy a long brunch along 25th Street. Taking a walk around one of the many community parks is also popular, which include the Chimborazo Park and Jefferson Park. Oakwood Cemetery has a nice walking path on the outside of the grounds for joggers. For a low-key Sunday, residents can enjoy the latest exhibit in the Chimborazo Medical Museum.
