A Walking Tour of Shockoe Bottom

It’s been a long time since we’ve been together and TSCOR is pleased to offer a guided walking tour of historical sites in Shockoe Bottom. We’ll cover approximately twelve blocks – about 1.5 easy walking miles with no hills to climb. THIS TOUR IS SOLD OUT!!! Check back soon – we’re sure to have more events planned!

Join us and see Lumpkin’s Slave Jail: a slave-holding facility active from the 1830’s through the Civil War; City Plantation: home of the first court clerk; Mason’s Hall: the oldest Masonic home in the U.S. and continuously in use since 1787; The Old Stone House: the oldest building in Richmond is also a museum dedicated to Edgar Allen Poe; and the Kanawha Canal Walk: four centuries of Richmond’s history seen through monuments and exhibits.

As a special welcome back promotion, this tour is only $15 for both TSCOR members and non-members alike.

Walkers will meet at 10:00 am on the steps to the front entrance of Main Street Station. All COVID-19 precautions will be followed, including wearing face masks. In the event of inclement weather, the tour will be rescheduled. For questions and information, contact Mary Maiden, 804-272-8636.
