Take a walk & enjoy Richmond’s historic architecture

In the light of the recent Covid-19 crisis, have you found yourself looking for outside activities? Below is a great way to practice social distancing, explore your town and enjoy the fresh air.  

We invite you to take A Tour of Richmond Places. The City of Richmond boasts over 100 buildings on the National Register of Historic Places. Downtown Richmond is a National Register District and offers one of the finest restored 19th-century commercial districts in the entire state of Kentucky. Your tour begins and ends at Irvine McDowell Park.   You may also want to just read about the architecture and history of some of our beautiful homes and buildings.   

Keep in mind that many of the residences listed are private homes and should only be viewed from the sidewalk.  Many or most of the businesses and public buildings are currently closed to walk-in traffic.
