Fan District Association honors Cabell architectureMay 18, 2016
The Fan District Association is one of the most active and revered civic associations in metro Richmond. Longtime advocates for historic preservation and the integrity of the urban environment, most of its members hold properties in the so-called historic "Fan District." The Historic Fan District is an 85-block Victorian residential neighborhood immediately west of the Richmond downtown commercial area. The Fan District development followed the tracks of a late 19th century trolley line. Developed largely in the 1880s to 1930s, the Fan includes many VCU properties. Cabell Library, like other properties west of Monroe Park, is part of the Fan.
