Take Action and Preserve This View

The View That Named Richmond - Robert Hunter (RTD 11-17-13)This beautiful, historic panoramic view of the James River from Libby Hill in Richmond, Virginia is the reason that Richmond is so-named. It’s identical to the view of the Thames River from Richmond Hill in Richmond-upon-Thames, England. Today the panoramic view – considered the City’s most beautiful — is enjoyed year-round by thousands of residents and visitors. But it is threatened once again by an inappropriate high-rise development on the riverfront.
