As the capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia, the independent city of Richmond houses a mixture of pre-Revolutionary War architecture spanning to modern day industrial skyscrapers. Originally settled by English colonists in the early 1600s, the city was the site of many famous American Revolution events, including Patrick Henry's "give me liberty or give me death" speech and the efforts of Founding Father Thomas Jefferson. During the Civil War, Richmond's skyline evolved to become the capital of the Confederate States of America.
The tallest building spotted in Richmond panoramic pictures is the Monroe Building, a white and black modern construction that is easy to pick out in the Richmond skyline. Other prominent buildings in Richmond skyline photos include the Federal Reserve Bank, Riverfront Plaza and Richmond Plaza. The Davis Mansion, known as the White House of the Confederacy, can be seen in the downtown area of Richmond skyline pictures and is a common tourist destination.
Many modern buildings in Richmond skyline pictures are thanks to the economical influence of the city's strength in law, finance, government, and banking. With a significant arts community, Richmond is a common tourist destination not merely for experiencing locales of American history, but also for museums, monuments, the professional performing arts and theatre venues. Richmond is a culturally rich city with a number of exciting destinations to offer, whether your interest is discovering points of interest in colonial America, Civil War era, or just experiencing one of America's oldest and most diverse cities.
