The Monument Avenue Preservation Society (MAPS) was established to preserve the Avenue and to preserve the historic elements of the homes, buildings and public spaces along the Avenue. Monument Avenue is one of only a few streets in the United States to be named a national historic landmark. The historic district reaches from Birch Street to Roseneath and includes Allen and Davis Avenue to the immediate south and north of Monument Avenue.

The purposes of MAPS are:

  • To beautify Monument Avenue in the City of Richmond, Virginia, to encourage the continued preservation, restoration and pertinent development of that thoroughfare, and to encourage adjacent property owners in accomplishing the same;
  • To promote the health, welfare, happiness and general well-being of the residents of Monument Avenue; and
  • To promote the civic, cultural, educational and recreational development of Monument Avenue in particular, and Richmond in general.
