Located south of the James River, Manchester was once a major port city and for three years was the county seat of Chesterfield. Incorporated into Richmond in 1910, Manchester enjoyed a mid-century retail heyday and is now recapturing its roots. Learn how the term "Dogtown" became associated with Southside and experience the varied architecture of Old Manchester. Meet at Bankuet Place, 1129 Hull Street.
