“My wife and I are from England and we visited Richmond a month ago. The Bridge and Oak Lodge were the highlights of the visit. The Lodge has stood as a silent witness to much of Richmond’s history. It really was like entering a time portal in that history was given physical form and one could easily imagine the lives of people living and working in what is now a sentinel from Richmond’s past. Congratulations to the volunteers associated with Oak Lodge, especially the informative and helpful lady who made us most welcome.”
