How about a hike with history with an emphasis on Richmond's women, their buildings and enduring legacy in Monroe Ward? Add to that, tour the State Capitol grounds where you'll learn about "The Richmond Calamity " of 1870.
This mid-week 6 mile hike begins at Stuart Circle where Monument Avenue joins Franklin Street.
We'll head east down Franklin Street where we'll see all 7 of the remaining structures from the Pre-War Between the States mural at the Woman's Club's Bolling Haxall House in which 27 structures were included.
Then we'll tour the State Capitol grounds.
I can arrange parking on the fourth (top) level of the parking garage which is behind First English Lutheran Church, 1603 Monument Avenue, Richmond, VA 23220. The church is located at the south western quadrant of Stuart Circle.
We will assemble for the hike across Lombardy street at the entrance to One Monument building which is located at the south eastern quadrant of Stuart Circle.
