Located south of the James River, Manchester was once a major port city and for three years was the county seat of Chesterfield. Incorporated into Richmond in 1910, Manchester enjoyed a mid-century retail heyday and is now recapturing its roots. Viewed by developers as an opportunity for urban residential and commercial growth, Manchester also supports a vibrant arts community. Meet at Bankuet Place, 1129 Hull Street.
