Folder 1: EssaysAdd to your cart.
These essays seem to be part of Todd's memoir and focus on her childhood, but they do give interesting insights into early Richmond and the Silver Creek Distillery. She talks about living near Lake Reba when her father worked for the water plant and about her life at Silver Creek when he worked for the distillery.
