1. Richmond Condita Marker
Inscription. From this spacious dwelling Colonel William Byrd, the Second, of Westover, set out in 1737 to lay the foundations and to project the future of the City of Richmond. Its grateful citizens, recalling the sufferings borne and the glory experienced, the duties met and the common purposes achieved, the physical conquests realized and the spiritual powers evoked, by this tablet record their debt to the large concept of the founder and their obligation for the unfailing courage, the ever-springing foresight, and the controlling patriotism of their forebears.
