Walking the cobblestones of Richmond’s streets, I feel connected to the people who walked them before me. Looking over the James River from Hollywood Cemetery’s peaceful shade, I imagine the river traffic of centuries ago. The diversity of my home town is exciting…the art, music, technology and social issues of today highlight the history that echoes from Monument Avenue to the Capitol, from St. John’s Church and Patrick Henry to Jackson Ward’s wrought iron porches. This is Richmond and I want to introduce you to the city that offers it all.
