More than half a century ago, Mary Wingfield Scott founded the organization which would go on to save the Church Hill neighborhood surrounding St. John's Church. Historic Richmond Foundation has worked over the past several decades not only to preserve individual buildings and specific urban neighborhoods in the City of Richmond, but to raise public awareness about the rich architectural fabric that makes Richmond unique. I think it's safe to say that Historic Richmond Foundation is one of the most important organizations in Richmond – simply based on its past successes.
This summer, Floricane will be working with the board and staff of Historic Richmond Foundation to identify possible future successes – and to focus in on a mission, vision and set of strategies that will keep the organization healthy and relevant as it continues the business of preserving the unique architectural characteristics that give Richmond its historic identity. It's going to be a fun project for everyone involved.
