Trip to Tredegar

Yesterday we drove to Richmond to visit the Civil War Visitor Center at Tredegar Iron Works. It's a National Park Service museum, interesting enough, not very large. The setting is fascinating: an old industrial site with ruins of huge masonry buildings, outdoor exhibits interpreting the site, and huge mill wheels. It is close to the canal and Belle Isle.

Richmond is about an hour and a half from Mt. Holly. We also stopped in Mechanicsville to shop at Office Max and Ukrop's.
