Ginter Park may be an established city neighborhood today, but it started out as an idyllic streetcar suburb in Henrico County. Its founder, Lewis Ginter, envisioned it as a shady respite for Richmond’s most successful families, modeled on the suburbs he had visited in Melbourne, Australia. In fact, it became central Virginia’s first master-planned community, and it was so successful that it incorporated itself as a town in 1912. (Richmond annexed it two years later.) Its leafy setting and attractive mix of Tudor, Colonial and Spanish revival styles continue to attract professionals looking for a quiet, welcoming neighborhood.
