Green Park is a small neighborhood located in Richmond, Virginia, within the boundaries of the North Side of the city limits. The community was founded in the late 1800s and has a rich history. The first homes in the neighborhood were constructed in the late 19th century, with a second major building spurt of brick houses occurring during the early 20th century. This continues into the early years of the Depression, when building effectively ceased in the neighborhood for a decade. A third major phase of homes was built in the early 1950s as housing was made available to G.I.s returning from WWII and their families.The architectural styles of homes in Green Park are diverse. Earlier homes in Green Park are of the Queen Anne, American Foursquare, American Craftsman, and American Colonial styles of architecture. Homes built in the 1950s were built in the Saltbox style. Today, many homes in Green Park are still adorned with their original oak woodwork; much of it spectacular, with floor-to-ceiling newel posts, hand-constructed paneled wainscoting, molding, oak floors, and built-in Chippendale corner cabinets. A few homes retain their original iceboxes and unusual plastered interior walls, scored to resemble brickwork.
