The Friends of Bryan Park have published a book that takes readers on a journey into the hidden history behind one of Richmond’s premier landmark parks. Along the way it explores the people and events behind the over 260 acres that were once the site of a planned slave rebellion, an early settlers’ plantation, grain and lumber mills, an ice business, a Confederate cavalry camp and a popular 1920’s auto-tourist camp. Through the generosity of the family of Joseph Bryan in 1910, this property is now one of Richmond’s finest recreational areas, noted for its picturesque landscapes, legendary azalea garden, walking and jogging trails, soccer fields, picnic shelters and playgrounds, as well as remarkable wildlife habitat. The story of Bryan Park invites readers to discover the people and places behind its rich history and fascinating evolution from rural estate to grand urban park. This book is soft cover, 8 1/2 by 11 inches, and contains 32 pages, 36 black and white illustrations, 6 maps, 10 color plates. It has a color cover and 4 page insert. Our book is available by mail. The cost for each book is $5. Shipping is an additional $4.95 for a USPS Priority Mail flat rate envelope for up to two books.

For $10, FoBP also sells note cards illustrated beautifully with scenes of the park by John J. Zeugner. Shipping costs are the same as for the books.

All sales proceeds support Bryan Park.
