About this property
In the mid-18th century, Richmond represented the heart of the tobacco industry. The city's boroughs were saturated with tobacco farmers, making the banks of the James River and Kanawha Canal an indispensable shipping locale. The area's popularity sprouted, what we call today, Tobacco Row, a string of buildings along twenty waterfront acres used to house tobacco and manufacture cigarettes. These facilities are well constructed, multistory brick buildings, built with strong bones to protect valuable content. Today, this collection of factory buildings has been reborn and represent the essence of Richmond.
