Road Trip – Bacon’s Castle: Precursor to Revolution

Published on November 18, 2013 by in Road Trip

Massachusetts has stolen the spotlight in American history.  From the birth of a nation to the American Revolution, it seems all you ever hear about is Pilgrims and Paul Revere.  It’s easy to forget, especially around Thanksgiving, that everything Massachusetts claims, Virginia had already done.  Plymouth Rock and the founding of the Plymouth Colony was

Happy Halloween!

Published on October 31, 2013 by in Personal

Happy Halloween from PhotoRVA.  I can now officially say PhotoRVA as seen in Richmond Magazine!  (Or at least the Richmond Magazine website.)  Read a great blog by writer Harry Kollatz Jr. about everyone’s favorite Richmond accountant:  W. W. Pool here! And enjoy a special high-res version of the master’s tomb itself, suitable for desktop background goodness.

Monumental RVA: It Was the One Armed Man

Published on July 16, 2013 by in RVA

Tucka-what?: Tuckahoe Defined and a Trip to Tuckahoe Plantation

Published on June 25, 2013 by in RVA
