Murals of Jackson Ward Walking Tour

July 21 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm


DUE TO EXTREME HEAT ADVISORIES ISSUED FOR THE RICHMOND REGION THIS WEEKEND, ALL VALENTINE PUBLIC WALKING TOURS ARE CANCELLED ON FRIDAY, JULY 19; SATURDAY, JULY 20; AND SUNDAY, JULY 21. IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS, PLEASE CALL THE VALENTINE FOR ASSISTANCE, 804-649-0711.

Explore the diversity of one of Richmond’s most vibrant neighborhoods. During our walk we’ll visit murals, revitalized buildings and historic homes to learn more about a neighborhood that has experienced numerous incarnations. As we trace its evolution from immigrant working-class neighborhood, to the “Harlem of the South” and a modern community today, we’ll explore how art is telling the story of Jackson Ward.
