After the Confederate White House tour, we decided to walk down and see Maggie Walker's home. I had tried to access the NHP website page unsuccessfully a couple of times through this website. Its an interesting neighborhood as other successful african americans of her time lived on the block. There are signs pointing out where the others lived.

Easily overlooked, this site tells the story of the first black woman to charter a bank in the United states at a time when women were not in business and blacks were discouraged from being in business.

Close in to downtown Richmond and the NPS Iron Works is a wonderful National Monument to some one practicing what we need more of, People Organization for Good. The staff we met were extremely friendly and helpful. The movie does a great job of acquainting you with Mrs. Walker and the technology does a good job of setting the stage for the time of her life. I suspect the youngsters would appreciate more splash but if black and white is what you have to work with, why fight it. The message is what is important and everyone needs to hear the message, especially our young people. Park the car on the street and walk in. The actual entrance and visitor center is around to the right and a half a block back from the front porch sign.
