Tours are scheduled for Saturdays, Sundays, and Thursdays between April 16 and October 29.

The 2022 tours include:

  • Origin Stories: Court End
  • Murals of Jackson Ward
  • Highlights of Hollywood Cemetery
  • History of Church Hill
  • Figures of Freedom (Shockoe Bottom & Downtown)
  • Monument Avenue: Origins and Reverberations Augmented Reality
  • Ballot Battle: Richmond Suffrage (Downtown)
  • Barton Heights: Northside
  • Shockoe Hill Cemetery

“We’re telling some fascinating and meaningful stories that most Richmonders haven’t heard before,” Valentine Director Bill Martin
said. “It’s important to us to tell these stories in the places they happened. This year, we expanded our tours to include Barton Heights and Shockoe Hill Cemetery – two historically significant sites that have not seen the love and recognition they deserve.”

Tours cost $20 for adults, $10 for Valentine members, and free for children under 18. Click here for more information.
