This tour travels though Richmond’s oldest neighborhoods, highlighting the ports, canals and railroads that helped contribute to Richmond’s rise. You will see numerous infrastructure landmarks, learn the history of those landmarks, and also hear the stories of some of the people who are tied to these places as well.
While much of the infrastructure to be discussed is still in place and active, numerous sites that have been lost to time will also be talked about.
The impact that this infrastructure has had on the road to modern Richmond cannot be understated, and we hope to leave you with an idea of how we got here today.
