Help paint the Liberty Trail (no, really)

Ever wanted to paint an historical trail with impunity? You’ll have your chance this Saturday.

Trail highlights

  • Lumpkin’s Slave Jail Site
  • Capitol Square
  • African Burial Ground
  • St. John’s Church
  • Museum of the Confederacy
  • Valentine Richmond History Center
  • Historic Tredegar
  • Holocaust Museum of Virginia

Over six miles of Richmond history, including 15 national landmarks (see sidebar), are connected by the Richmond Liberty Trail. This Saturday–in coordination with Civil War and Emancipation Day–volunteers are asked to help paint identifying logos on downtown portions of the trail.1

Teams of no more than four will use a stencil to paint the logo (above image) on sections of the trail, roughly three to four blocks for each team. Those interested in participating are asked to register by 12:00 PM on April 4th.

Additional information for volunteers can be found online.
