Jill and I made sure that we went to the Old National Road Welcome and Visitors Center located on the National Road East in Richmond. What a good idea that was.

Volunteer, Gladys, was such a helpful person. She pointed out brochures, answers all of our many questions, and searched for books that Jill was wanting to purchase. I purchased some post cards to send to VT friends.

We picked up Walking tours for the Historic Districts, Indiana Maps, Information about museums, murals, monuments, etc.

Both Jill and I agreed that this was one of the best welcome/visitor centers we have visited. It's located in a rather new building which is spacious, well lit, and organized in a helpful fashion. There are many items which can be purchased; however, most of what is available is FREE.

Be sure to visit the Old National Road Welcome Center when you first arrive in Richmond; it will certainly save you from wasting time and from feeling stressed.
