Have you ever been to Monument Avenue?


Monument Avenue is a city planning style Boulevard in Richmond, the capital of Virginia. It is separated by a green grass in the center, along which there are many sculptures. Due to the historical buildings, urban forms, high-quality residential and religious buildings, diversity of land use, integration of public art and various modes of transportation on both sides of the avenue, it is rated as one of the 10 great streets in the United States.

On both sides of Monument Avenue are statues of Virginia Confederate civil war participants Robert Lee, James Jewell Brown Stewart, Jefferson Davis, Stonewall Jackson, and two other Richmond natives, Matthew Fontaine Maury, and international tennis star Arthur Ashe. The first monument, the statue of Robert Lee, was erected in 1890. Between 1900 and 1925, monumental Boulevard was built with significant residential, church and apartment buildings. Monument Avenue is the venue for some annual events, especially in the spring, including the annual Monument Avenue 10km race. On Robert Lee's birthday and Confederate history month, Confederate 1's son, dressed in his military uniform, gathered on Memorial Avenue. Monument Avenue is also the site of another spring traditional activity, the Easter Parade, where many Richmond will wear Easter hats to walk along the avenue.
