Maggie Lena Walker devoted her life to civil rights advancement, economic empowerment, and educational opportunities for Jim Crow-era African Americans and women. As a bank president, newspaper editor, and fraternal leader, Walker served as an inspiration of pride and progress. Today, Walker’s home is preserved as a tribute to her enduring legacy of vision, courage, and determination.
The Maggie L. Walker National Historic Site is comprised of Mrs. Walker’s historic home and several surrounding buildings that serve as the site’s visitor center and exhibit hall. Together, they cover about a quarter of a city block in Richmond’s historic Jackson Ward neighborhood.
Parking Information: The house is at 110 1/2 Leigh Street and the visitor center — and site entrance — is around the corner at 600 North 2nd Street. Parking is usually available along city streets.
