Originally developed as a resort, Bon Air, Virginia has been designated a National Historical District, with many structures of Victorian design from the late 19th and early 20th century. Its name means “good air,” reflecting its role as a resort getaway that Richmonders enjoyed for its cool, fresh air, a welcome relief from the stiffling, dirty air of Richmond's industrial downtown of the late 1800s.

The resort eventually became a village, and to this day, a village it remains.The Bon Air Historical Society was formed in 1978 to preserve and share the stories and gather to appreciate the wonderful homes and community traditions of this unique area of Chesterfield County.We welcome anyone with a love of history and tradition to join us in celebrating Bon Air’s rich heritage.
