Uptown/Parker-Gray National Register of Historic Places District
On January 12, 2010 the National Park Service approved the Uptown/Parker-Gray Historic District for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. The State of Virginia accepted the Uptown/Parker-Gray Historic District for listing on the Virginia Landmarks Register in June 2008.
Property owners who are considering historically appropriate rehabilitation of eligible buildings in the district should direct inquiries regarding state tax credits and federal tax credits for qualifying income-producing properties to the Virginia Department of Historic Resources at 804-367-2323 or by visiting the DHR website at http://www.dhr.virginia.gov/.
The Department of Planning and Zoning began the process of nominating the Uptown/Parker-Gray neighborhood to the National Register of Historic Places in early 2007. The National Register is the United States' official list of historic buildings, structures, sites, objects and districts worthy of preservation.
