From the Valentine:

Did you know the beautifully landscaped grounds of the VMFA were once home to over 3,000 veteran Confederate soldiers? On this tour we will explore the good, the bad and the “devilish” story of this historic neighborhood, with stops at residences, statues, museums and churches.

Whether you are a long-time resident or new to the city, the tours provide not only the historical information but the current development of the neighborhoods.

The cost of tickets to the tour at 10:00 AM on Saturday, June 2nd is $15 for adults, $5 for children, and $5 for Valentine members. The tours are two hours in length and begin at 215 North Sheppard Street.
