 Overview
 Description
Fulton Gas Works operated for nearly 120 years, providing gas to illuminate and heat Richmond.

Demolition started in November of 2021. Building and the massive storage tank frame are gone. Fun fact - the tank frame was a "gasometer", a device used to hold gas before it is dispersed to local customers. As gas would accumulate the bladder inside the structure would fill rising to the top of the metal frame and then deflate as gas was delivered throughout the city.
