Quoit Club | Jackson Ward Cemeteries
Join us for a members only walking tour of the proposed Shockoe Hill Burying Ground Historic District in Jackson Ward, featuring Shockoe Hill Cemetery, Hebrew Cemetery, and the Shockoe Hill African Burying Ground. Guides include Ryan Smith, PhD, professor of history at VCU; William Obrochta, Director of Beth Ahabah’s Museum and Archives; Ellen Chapman, PhD, Archaeologist; and a special “appearance” by Lenora McQueen, whose advocacy and hard work is behind the recent and long overdue recognition of the Shockoe Hill African Burying Ground.
We will have one start time (6:15p.m.) with limited capacity – we will require everyone to sign up in advance, social distance, wear masks if you are comfortable. To sign up for the tour please click here. You will need to agree to Historic Richmond’s COVID-19 waiver to participate. YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER TO ATTEND.
For our walking tour, we ask you to BRING YOUR CELL PHONE WITH HEADPHONES. We will be using a conference call number to give the tour. Make sure your phone is FULLY CHARGED. This way everyone can socially distance and still be able to hear!
