One of the nicest avenues you will see, beautiful homes located on both sides of the avenue. Great historical value, especially when you have towns like Charlottesville, VA & New Orleans are looking to take down statues of Civil War leaders
American Civil War history tours should end up driving up this street to put faces on the Generals who fought for what they believed in. Interesting in that at the end there is a statue of Arthur Ashe -- doesn't fit in at all!!!!!
We were on a Friendship Tours bus trip and had a narrated tour of the city. This was my favorite portion by far. The section of the city is absolutely gorgeous and these statues added a great deal to our knowledge base. Not to be missed!

Generals on horseback and other famous historical figures create the purpose for driving down Richmond's Monument Avenue. Gorgeous brick homes decorate the blocks leading to the monuments. It's worth the drive. Enjoy history in the south's Richmond, Virginia!
I love strolling down the wide sidewalks of Monument Avenue. You will see three and four story buildings that were built in the early 1900's with large balconies on each floor. Many of these historical buildings have been turned into apartments to rent. Many are AirBNB's. I love the beautiful historical statues you can view sitting in the middle of... 更多
