Richmond: Historic Carillon


Nestled to the west of Byrd Park is the Carillon neighborhood, named after the Carillon Bell Tower, Richmond’s soaring World War I Memorial built in 1932. The Carillon is a Virginia Historic Landmark on the National Register of Historic Places. This vivacious and diverse neighborhood has its roots from a single-family farm.  After the turn of the century, the Carillon area attracted many of Richmond’s prominent families who hired note worthy architects of the time such as Duncan Lee, Otis Asbury, and landscape architect Charles F. Gillette.  A neighborhood association, the Carillon Civic Association, was formed in 1968. This is a walking tour.
