Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1885 edition. Excerpt: ...Virginia. In the "Richmond Dispatch," of Sept. 13, 1885, is a table, compiled from the official returns filed in the office of the First Auditor, showing the value of the real estate in Virginia, by counties and cities, by the Reassessment of 1880, the Assessment of 1884, and the Reassessment of 1885.

We have omited the cents of the table and added one to the dollars where they were in any case over 50. Taking the reassessment values of 1880 and of 1885 as the true ones, we find that in the five years from 1880 to 1885 the increase in the value of real estate in Virginia as a whole was $36,100,630, or nearly 16 per cent, notwithstanding the fact that most values have been decreasing during these five years.
