Nestled in downtown Richmond, Virginia, the brick sidewalks of Church Hill are lined with gas street lamps and rows of late-19th-century Italianates and Queen Anne Victorians with wrought-iron porches. This place is truly alive with history [..]. But the past isn’t all there is to Church Hill, which was seeing a redevelopment boom right before the recession hit. Walk south toward Libby Hill ParkÃ¢â‚¬â€and the James River that it overlooksÃ¢â‚¬â€and you’ll find the entertainment and cafe hotspots of Shockoe Bottom and Shockoe Slip.
