One event on June 16, 2018 at 10:00am

Did you know the beautifully landscaped grounds of the VMFA were once home to over 3,000 veteran Confederate soldiers? On this tour we will explore the good, the bad and the “devilish” story of this historic neighborhood, with stops at residences, statues, museums and churches.


“Whether you are a long-time resident or new to the city, the tours provide not only the historical information but the current development of the neighborhoods.  I highly recommend the walking tours!”


Price: $15 Adult, $5 Child, $5 Valentine members
Length: 2 hours
Parking: On Street
Meeting place: Meet in front of 215 North Sheppard Street.
