The iconic department Richmond department store, Miller & Rhoads, was founded in 1885. Like many stores of its kind, it began as a local dry-goods store but by 1923, it was the largest department store between Washington, D.C. and Atlanta. Using costume material from the store’s founding through its closure, this edition of Collections Connections Live! will trace the store’s journey from humble dry-goods store to retail icon.
