The Battery Court Historic District is a national historic district located at Richmond, Virginia. The district encompasses 549 contributing buildings and 1 contributing site (Battery Park) located north of downtown Richmond and west of Barton Heights and Brookland Park. The primarily residential area developed starting in the early-20th century as one of the city's early “streetcar suburbs.” The buildings are in a variety of popular late-19th and early-20th century architectural styles including frame bungalows, American Foursquare, Colonial Revival, Tudor Revival, and Mission Revival. Notable non-residential buildings include the Overbrook Presbyterian Church (now All Souls Presbyterian) and Battery Park Christian Church (now Mount Hermon Baptist).[3]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003.[1]
