Building/structure dates: 1900 initial construction
Significance: The Downtown Short Pump Grocery is a largely intact, representative example of a small scale, mixed use rural commercial building from the turn of the century. The building's unique stylistic features express the transition from late nineteenth century Victorian, to early twentieth century Craftsman and Colonial Revival styles. Such rural commercial architecture, once prevalent throughout Henrico County, is now threatened with extinction.
