Very cool. Thanks for posting! If I were a rich man, I’d love to live there.

Very interesting history it is a joy to live in a place with so much history documented. It seems ChurchHill was deeply involved in Richmond history

Funny how many houses on the Hill look alike on the inside. Almost interchangeable. The Fan too.

I took the tour yesterday. The place is awesome but man does it need some work. If I had a big pile of money I’d scoop that thing up and do it right. It’s a project and I hope it lands in the right hands.

@4 – can you give a little more details about what kind of work it needs?

It needs a lot of updating…bathrooms, kitchens, plumbing, electrical, HVAC, etc. and a ton of cosmetic stuff.

It’s the kind of house that you could easily drop a $100K into and never see it. Doing this one right would be a few hundred thousand dollar renovation.

That was really cool. Thank you for posting it. I liked the family history and the description of how Libby Prison came to be. I also have seen Frank Cunningham’s headstone in either Hollywood or Shockoe Cemetery (I think Hollywood). It reads, “Richmond’s Sweetest Singer”.
