Mo to Su from 12:00 AM to 12:00 AMCobblestoned Monument Avenue is the only street in the country declared a national historic site. This is a favorite local spot for taking a walk or for reading a novel, spread out on the grass. After the Civil War, statues were erected on Monument Avenue to honor Confederate heroes. These include Confederate President Jefferson Davis, Robert E. Lee, commander of the Confederate Army, and General "Stonewall" Jackson, so called because he rode upon his horse immovable and expressionless as a stone wall. To better illustrate Richmond's cultural diversity, a statue of tennis great Arthur Ashe, a Richmond native, was added in 1996.
