Church Hill, Richmond’s oldest neighborhood, is brimming with beautifully appointed homes, many of which were built in the early to mid 1800s, some of which overlook the picturesque parks including Chimborazo Park, which offers a stunning view downriver that is said to be identical to that of Richmond on Thames–a borough of London–and, thus, our city’s namesake. Some of the city’s most acclaimed and nationally-recognized restaurants, including Dutch & Co., The Roosevelt, and Metzger Bar & Butchery, call the neighborhood home, and you’ll also find a number of quaint corner coffee shops and bakeries.
