In a 1906 brochure, Barton Heights was described for its “quiet, peaceful and beautiful homes,” which served as an escape from the hustle and bustle of growing downtown Richmond. Join us to explore this early streetcar suburb’s residential history, as well as the community’s commercial and retail center along North Avenue and Brookland Park Boulevard.
