Richmond VA – Day 4 (2016 Vacation #1)

Sadly, we fly back today. We have enough time for a quick visit to Maggie L. Walker’s home. She is the first woman to found and run a commercial bank. I don’t think she is the first woman to run a bank, but she is the first to have founded one from scratch. And it was very successful. The tour of her home was an eye-opener. She brought many “modern” things to the home, such as steam heat and electric lighting.

Once finished here, it’s back on the plane and heading home to warm weather. That is a plus. Still, it’s sad to know the vacation is over. Here’s Maggie . . .
