Once referred to as Richmond's “Fifth Avenue,” Grace Street in the nineteenth century was a quiet residential area that started at Capitol Square and extended west to the edge of the city. A few Victorian houses survive behind shopfront additions, but the predominant character of the street is that of boisterous 1920s–1950s commercial growth. Grace Street from east to west presents a cross section of commercial architecture.
