The Mary Wingfield Scott historical marker has been designed and is proposed for the 100 block of East Franklin (in front of Linden Row):

Richmond native Mary Wingfield Scott is credited with the transformation of historic preservation in Virginia. Through her education and vision, Miss Scott introduced a scholarly approach to the movement, inspiring generations of preservationists. She founded the William Byrd Branch of the Association for the Preservation of Virginia Antiquities in 1935, tirelessly documented Richmond’s historic buildings, and advocated for their protection through changes in public policy. To educate the public, Miss Scott gave lectures, published regularly, and led walking tours of historic neighborhoods. She bought and restored Linden Row, ensuring its preservation when she donated it to the Historic Richmond Foundation.
