RICHMOND, Va. (AP) – Three buildings on the University of Richmond campus have been added to the Virginia Landmarks Register.

The three additions to the state's official list of significant places are North Court, Ryland Hall and Cannon Memorial Chapel. The Virginia Department of Historic Resources says the buildings reflect important aspects of the private university's history.

In 2014, the university will mark a century since it moved from what was then Richmond College in the Fan District of the city to the Henrico County suburb where the university is now located. At its new address, the school established Westhampton College for women.

North Court served as the main building for Westhampton College, Ryland Hall anchored the new campus and Cannon Memorial Chapel was constructed in 1929.
