Hickory Hill School to be nominated to National Register of Historic Places

May 14, 2024 | by

The Commission of Architectural Review (CAR) will consider Hickory Hill School’s nomination to the National Register of Historic Places and inclusion in the Virginia Landmark Register at their next meeting on May 28.

This meeting will be held in person at City Hall, 900 E. Broad Street, and will also be available via Microsoft Teams HERE.

The building, now home to the Hickory Hill Community Center, was built in 1938. It was the first brick school for African Americans in Chesterfield County during the segregation era. As early as 1869 a school for African American youth was at or near the site of the Hickory Hill School, including a later 1915 frame school and 1925 Rosenwald School.
