The Egyptian Building Of Richmond, Virginia

In 1844, the Egyptian Building of Richmond, Virginia was built after Napoleon’s army conquered the country of Egypt. United States architects began to design Egyptian style buildings around the country.

The Egyptian Building was near the site of the Confederate White House during the U.S. Civil War. The building did not sustain any damage from the Great Fire of Richmond that occurred in 1865, after the confederate army set fire to various buildings that burnt down nine tenths of Richmond’s business district.
