Church Hill Walking Tour

Sat Jul 18 3:30 pm
Church Hill is the oldest neighborhood in Richmond. You will meander through streets lined with beautiful late 18th and 19th century architecture; see St. John’s Episcopal Church where Patrick Henry proclaimed “Give me liberty, or give me death!” in 1775; and view stunning vistas of the City of Richmond. You will also hear about the eccentric cast of characters who make up the fabric of Colonial, Federal, and antebellum Richmond.

The tour lasts approximately 1.5 – 2 hours. It meets in front of St. Johns Church on 25th& Broad St. No need to reserve a spot, just show up!

The tour is free. If you like the tour, please tip your guide.

Walking tour of Chimborazo Park

Sat Jul 18 7:00 pm
After the Union occupation of Richmond, Chimborazo Hill went from an enormous Confederate hospital to a place of residence for thousands of newly freed slaves, and remained so through the Reconstruction years. Until recently, the Freedmen’s Bureau, schools, and racial violence at Chimborazo had largely been forgotten. Join the ranger for this 3/4 mile walking tour, based on newly discovered primary sources. Meet at Chimborazo Medical Museum, 3215 East Broad Street, Richmond, VA 23223
