RICHMOND, Va. (AP) - A home for Confederate veterans on the grounds of the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts has been added to the Virginia Landmarks Registry.

The Robinson House in Richmond is among a dozen sites added to the register by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources.

The other 11 additions announced this week include historic properties in northern Virginia, the state's western frontier, and the Richmond and Roanoke areas, among others.

The properties also include tobacco warehouses in Richmond, a plantation home in Powhatan, a historic district in Franklin County and a centuries-old brick house in Nelson County.
