Wilfred Cutshaw graduated from the Virginia
Military Institute in 1858 and served as a
lieutenant colonel of artillery in the Confederate
army. As Richmond's city engineer (1873-1907),
he instituted an innovative system of civic
planning that transformed the cityscape. Cutshaw
oversaw the construction of numerous schools,
armories, markets, and a new city hall. He
established a program of urban forestry, reflected
in modern Richmond's tree-lined streets. In
William Byrd Park, one of several city parks
he designed, Cutshaw combined the practicality
of a new municipal water works and reservoir
with scenic promenades, roadways, and lakes.
