There is a video from CBS6 on the story but unfortunately it doesn’t allow me to embed it on this post, so go here to view it.
The United States National Slavery museum in Richmond is a project 10 years in the making.
Pictures of the future museum were shown to CBS 6 today. The museum is slated to be built at 15th and Main streets in Shockoe Bottom.
Organizers call the overall area a Heritage center.
Over time, the old Seaboard building behind Main Street Station will be part of a Genealogy center filled with artifacts and a plethora of information.
As might have guessed the only hold up is of course money. In this case approximately $100 million. A community meeting will be held Saturday from 10 a.m. to noon at the Franklin Military Academy at 701 N. 37th Street to discuss the possible museum.
