The Timberville Historic District encompasses the historic center of the small town of Timberville, Virginia, which straddles the North Fork of the Shenandoah River in Rockingham County. Although the area was settled in the mid-18th century (the oldest surviving house dates to c. 1750), the area did not develop economically until after the arrival of the railroad in 1868. The area saw significant development in the early 20th century, developing a commercial center north of the river. Businesses migrated south of the river in the mid-20th century, and the area's economy declined in the 1960s. The district includes a number of Italianate commercial buildings, a streamlined Moderne gas station, and housing in a wide variety of styles dating from the 18th to 20th centuries.
The district was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2013.
The Fan is a district of Richmond, Virginia, so named because of the "fan" shape of the array of streets that extend west from Belvidere Street, on the eastern edge of Monroe Park, westward to Arthur Ashe Boulevard. However, the streets rapidly resemble a grid after they go through what is now Virginia Commonwealth University. The Fan is one of the easterly points of the city's West End section, and is bordered to the north by Broad Street and to the south by VA 195, although the Fan District Association considers the southern border to be the properties abutting the south side of Main Street. The western side is sometimes called the Upper Fan and the eastern side the Lower Fan, though confusingly the Uptown district is located near VCU in the Lower Fan. Many cafes and locally owned restaurants are located here, as well as historic Monument Avenue, a boulevard formerly featuring statuary of the Civil War's Confederate president and generals. The only current statue is a more modern one of tennis icon Arthur Ashe. Development of the Fan district was strongly influenced by the City Beautiful movement of the late 19th century.
