The Westover Hills neighborhood is one of Richmond, Virginia’s more established areas. This community was home to Frederick William Sievers, sculptor of the Matthew Fontaine Maury and Stonewall Jackson monuments on Monument Avenue; and the Virginia Monument at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. A historic plaque marks the location of the workshop on the grounds of his former home on West 43rd Street.

The neighborhood lies along the east and west sides of Westover Hills Boulevard, a location that puts Westover Hills near the geographical center of Richmond. The neighborhood is located directly south of the James River where State Route 161 – a major north-south roadway that bisects the city – crosses over on the Boulevard Bridge from the Fan District. The bridge is also known as the “Nickel Bridge” because of the original cost of its toll.

Westover Hills was originally a “streetcar neighborhood,” the name given to communities designed with homes located near the terminus of the trolley line. The trolley line in Westover Hills ran up Semmes Avenue and ended at Forest Hill Park; an amusement park and swimming lakes were also located at the terminus point.

The original homes in the neighborhood were built from the 1920s to the 1940s. Westover Hills is characterized by a jumble of highly-varied architectural styles that sites Cape Cod designs next door to Spanish Colonials, Tudor Revivals or Arts and Crafts styles.

A number of the homes in Westover Hills feature large lots and a quiet, suburban feel; some homes overlook the banks of the James River, Westover Hills Boulevard, Forest Hill Avenue and Forest Hill Park. There are a good number of well-established restaurants and commercial businesses located in Westover Hills, and a number of churches, as well.
