Pump House


Julie and I braved the frigid temps this weekend and did a little exploring of Richmond. We came across this turn-of-the-century pump house just off the James. It supplied water to the City of Richmond and was also a social gathering place. The historical makers said people would arrive by barge from the canal and hold dances in the upstairs portion of the building. You can see the current pump house in the background.
