We received an email from a fan of the Shockoe Examiner wanting to know the origin of "Undertaker’s Row" in Richmond. This person lives on the 3200 block of E. Broad across from Chimborazo Park and the city tax assessor classified that block as “Tobacco Row/ Undertakers Row.”<
Any ideas? Maybe the city assessor is just wrong?
Is there another area of the city that had a large number of funeral homes?
