Rosy History

Often you hear Richmond referred to as the "Rose City" but do you know why? E. G. Hill, along with his father and son, established remarkeable floral companies in the city which flourished from 1881 to 2007. E.G. Hill is remembered with a fountain and garden area, just west of the Richmond Rose Garden.
