111 Places in Richmond That You Must Not Miss


Welcome to 111 Places in Richmond You Must Not Miss, a collection of the sites and experiences that make the River City such a special place. To those who don’t know Richmond, you’ll find the city itself to be a hidden gem, the cradle of 400 years of American history, steward of the magnificent James River, and the unlikely home to heralded culinary masters.

To those who do know Richmond, the self-deprecating but proud populace inured to its remarkable features, by flipping through these pages you will uncover secrets about your city, new and old. You know Hollywood Cemetery, but do you know the final resting place of our famous psychic horse? Have you kept an open mind about our smaller neighbors to the North and South and gazed at the Heavens from “the Center of the Universe” or seen the Petersburg residence constructed entirely from tombstones?

There’s something for everyone within these pages, whether nature lover, history buff, aesthete, epicurean, tippler, or just an adventurous soul seeking curiosities - the River City welcomes you to partake in its treasures. Join us in discovering the secret spots that Richmond hides so well.

John Tucker

John Tucker grew up in Richmond, where he subsisted on Ukrops White House rolls as a child, slept under a Richmond Braves poster, and regularly rode his bike to the Pony Pasture flatwater. He discovered the 111 Places series while living in Chicago and immediately felt destined to write the Richmond edition. He is very grateful to have moved back to the River City, where he lives with his wife, children, and dog.

Ashley Tucker

Ashley Tucker grew up in Chester, Virginia, where she received her first camera from her grandfather over 20 years ago. After stints in New York and Chicago spent honing her photography skills, Ashley reunited with her hometown and used her camera to display Richmond's hidden treasures with her husband, the author of this book, their adventurous children, and rambunctious golden retriever. When she isn't capturing the city behind a lens, you can find her on her yoga mat at Humble Haven, spending time with her family, or tackling one of many projects around their charming, 100-year-old home nestled in the West End.
