Two blocks south on Allison Street you will find Monument Avenue, a National Historic Landmark that placed Richmond on the world’s map. The result of a desire to honor Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee with a statue following his death in 1870, Monument Avenue was designed in the City Beautiful style that used urban planning to encourage civic pride and virtue. The grand boulevard was named for its focal point, the 61-foot-tall Lee Monument, which was unveiled in 1890. Monuments to Confederate President Jefferson Davis and Confederate Gen. J.E.B. Stuart were added in 1907 and cemented Monument Avenue as a tribute to the “Lost Cause” mythology of the Civil War that was being spread throughout the South. Over time, monuments were erected to Confederate Gen. Thomas “Stonewall” Jackson (1919), Confederate Naval Commander Matthew Fontaine Maury (1929) and Richmond native, tennis champion and humanitarian Arthur Ashe (1996). Most of the historic houses on Monument Avenue were built between 1902 and 1930. For more information about the past, present and potential future of Monument Avenue, visit the American Civil War Museum’s resource site, (Lee Monument, Allen and Monument avenues, 0.4 miles. Davis Monument, Davis and Monument avenues, 0.4 miles. J.E.B. Stuart Monument, Lombardy Street and Monument Avenue, 0.5 miles.)
