Most all historical sites in Richmond are currently closed but that should not be a barrier to access these cultural resources and the area’s rich past. University of Richmond staffers Angela Leeper, Director of Curriculum Materials Center, and her assistant Dianna Barron, compiled a list of online Richmond resources for parents and others to enrich their mind and pass the time including a listing of Richmond area historic sites with online resources anyone can access.
