Discover Richmond: June 2017

A century ago, a syndicated health column in The Times-Dispatch reflected the era. The good doctor, noting how women cared too much about protecting rugs and furniture, was promoting the benefits of sun exposure. His advice – to “husbands, fathers and just fellows” – was for them to get their ladies to open the drapes at home.

We’ve come a long way, thank goodness. In this edition, we feature a baker’s dozen of local medical specialists ( gasp – some are women!) who share insights into their fields. From promising technologies to some back-to-basics reminders for patients, they give us a window into good health – bones to brains, noses to knuckles.

Taking a spin into the past, we capture some fascinating road history in the region. Midlothian Turnpike has some incredible tales to tell (murder? a monument in the middle?), and we look at the stories behind some Henrico street names, too.

In other features, we introduce you to a guy with a bunch of tattoos, a punk rock past … and a yarmulke! Patrick Beaulier is the young rabbi at the only Jewish congregation based in Chesterfield County.

We also explore the eclectic charm of Richmond's Bellevue neighborhood, and we get behind the produce stand with Amy Hicks of farmers market mainstay Amy's Garden. We dig up a whale in Caroline County, delve into Virginia’s climate, get some tips from the “Richmond Rehabbers” and even learn about how tobacco and religion set the stage for famous Hanover County orator Patrick Henry.

Discover Richmond touches on history, people, food, lifestyles, travel – the topics you’ve told us you like. Enjoy the journey!
