"How many varieties in language, dress, manner and appearance could be seen:-the English, the Scotch and the Irish....the Indian, the backwoodsman, the Spaniard, the Dutchman and the African." John P. Little, historian, 1851."

Built at the crossroads of Indian trade routes, Richmond has always been a place where people, languages, and goods have mixed. In the 19th century, immigrants, free blacks, and industrial slaves all lived and worked in Shockoe's tobacco warehouses and residential neighborhoods.
