Steven Reiss is in the beginning staged of putting together a book on the history of Fulton to potentially be published in early 2017.
He describes the book as “a visual history of the birthplace of Richmond”, with a scope of 400 years time covering John Smith and Christopher Newport to the heyday of old Fulton though to the urban renewal of the 1970s and the current status and future plans for the area.
Reiss is seeking photographs and images for the book, and is seeking input from Fulton residents then and now. If you have any photos or stories to share, contact Reiss at (804)577-7195 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
A resident of Rocketts Landing, Reiss is a published author, a registered architect, and an architectural historian. He is working on the book at no cost, and any profits will be directed towards local non-profit organizations.
