Please note that this tour is now sold out. Thanks for your interest and we hope you will join us for another Richmond History tour in the future!

Join us as we explore the history of Richmond’s riverfront, examining architectural gems and preservation efforts along the James River and the canals. From the falls of the James, the Turning Basin and Shockoe Slip to adaptive reuse of the 19th century warehouses and contemporary public artworks, we’ll discover numerous stories of the growth of Richmond and its evolution on the river.
