Introducing a new history tour series, courtesy of Richmond Discoveries and the Edgar Allan Poe Museum. This tour will highlight the unusual and little-heard stories of Richmond's past, those tales which may have fascinated Poe, had he heard of them in his lifetime or not...

Sometimes dark, maybe amusing, perhaps unbelievable, these are RICHMOND'S HIDDEN HISTORY.
