Richmond, Virginia: Historical Civil War City with Classic Architecture and Natural Beauty
Richmond is the capital of Virginia, but during the Civil War it also served as the capital of the short-lived Confederate States of America. A walk down Broad Street from Linden Row brings visitors to The American Civil War Museum, a modern gallery that recounts the period’s history and displays military artifacts such as Stonewall Jackson’s forage cap and Robert E. Lee’s field tent.
Eight miles north of the hotel, the Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden encompasses more than a dozen themed gardens on 40 meticulously cultivated acres. In the Healing Garden, medicinal plants and a granite mortar-and-pestle installation celebrate the restorative properties of botanicals. The Sunken Garden harks back to ancient Roman landscaping methods with a reflecting pool and sprawling beds of pastel blooms.
