A little while ago, I had the good fortune of helping some friends buy a home in Historic Church Hill. I thought I’d post a few pictures and let them tell you about the process. I also thought it was cool that they bought a pre-Civil War era house, which is now connected in a small way to a young woman in Sudan, who is living in the aftermath of her own country’s longstanding civil war.
When I need to know a piece of history about Richmond, Richard is my go-to guy. So it seemed appropriate that he would be the person to buy this little gem in Church Hill- right above Libby Hill Park- and care for this living piece of history in the decades to come.
I asked Richard a couple questions:
Me: You got to choose who would receive a loan to be tied to the purchase of this house. Why did you choose Lucy Peter?
