the neighborhood History

The neighborhood’s name comes from its history. Added to the City of Richmond in 1901, Scott’s Addition stayed close — its boundaries never changing — but wandered far with entrepreneurial visions. Breweries and boutique bowling, ciders and cinema, restaurants and rooftops and retail, all within walking. This is SA+.

growing the grid About The Association

The Greater Scott's Addition Association board is an eclectic group of individuals who live, work, or own businesses in the neighborhood. From hosting happy hours to repairing sidewalks, GSAA offers community, choice, and a voice to business owners and residents alike.

It takes a village to raise a neighborhood.

Board members and officers are nominated each December by the current board to serve starting in January. Volunteer appointments serve three years, while officers serve one and can serve consecutively.
