March 11, 2009: Richmond Virginia Day One

This says so much.

Main Street Train Station, built in 1901 and totally refurbished. On the site of the station once stood a hotel with a "slave auction stage."

The more I see of the USA as I travel, I am seeing how we deify Americans. It's happening currently to Ronald Regan.

Lobby of Jefferson Hotel. The hotel was put up for sale in the 1970s. The gov't wanted to tear it down and build an office building. A real estate company wanted to refurbish it. The real estate company won out.
