Richmond Quick Guide

Richmond, Virginia was among the first - and the largest - of the 13 colonies, and was the place where Patrick Henry's cry of "Give me liberty or give me death" was heard just before the Revolutionary War. In 1861, the city would become the capitol of the Confederacy during the Civil War, when a number of states seceded from the United States.

Building on its embattled past, the city of Richmond today is a thriving, mid-sized metropolis of close to 200,000 people. The city is culturally rich and diverse and is considered to be among the best areas in the country to live.

Richmond's economy is driven by government, manufacturing, retail and service industries. There are also several high profile legal companies here, as well as a number of Fortune 500 companies headquartered in Richmond, including the popular electronics chain Circuit City and tobacco giant Phillip Morris USA - quite appropriate given that tobacco was first discovered being grown by Native Americans here.

Richmond's City Hall is located at City Hall, 900 East Broad St. For general information, citizens may call (804) 646-7000. Richmond is also the capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia, and many state agencies are located here as well.
