On Your Way Down

Nobody Knows You

City of New Orleans


Union Hotel

The Union Hotel was Richmond's first "real" hotel. It was located on the southwest corner of 19th and Main and built by Dr. John Adams in 1817 and designed by architect Otis Manson, one of Richmond's first "real" resident architects. All of Richmond's major urban universities can trace their roots to the hotel.
