Virgetta’s house

06/02/2015 7:45 AM by

Teresa got a little house history this weekend:

I was sweeping my porch today when this gal came up and told me that her family lived in my house for three generations. We walked through each room together and she pointed out where her grandmother Virgetta would sit and call out to neighbors walking by, the room where Virgetta passed away, and the spot under the stairs where there had once been an old time phone booth. We talked about Richmond history, ancestry and the value of community. It may have made my month. And this place just became a whole lot more meaningful to me
