This episode features John Murden, the publisher of the Church Hill People’s News. He discusses the area known as Church Hill and its history. What is casually called Church Hill is actually a collection of many neighborhoods, (including a neighborhood officially called Church Hill). The conversation focusses on much of the 20th century history of these neighborhoods, and how, out of all of the different areas of the city, it has recently received a great deal of national attention.
His Church Hill People’s News is a community website that that ranges for lost dogs to local events to some really amazing historical content and covers the east end of Richmond, VA.
