Architecture in The Fan by allie912

Architecture in The Fan

The Fan District, in Richmond, as described in Wikipedia, is primarily a residential neighborhood consisting of late-nineteenth and early-twentieth century homes. It is also home to VCU's Monroe Park Campus, several parks, tree-lined avenues and three of the city's historical controversial monuments which have been removed or are slated to be removed.
The Fan was so named because of the "fan" shape of the array of streets as shown on the city map.
I live just west of the Fan, within walking distance, which is a good thing since parking is pretty much by permit only.
I’ll be sharing more pictures of this neighborhood in the days ahead as I enjoyed an afternoon at the Fall Fan Arts Stroll.
Lovely architecture!
