Richmond is the capital city of Virginia and is the third largest city in the state, with a population of approximately 205,000. Founded in 1737 and incorporated as a town in 1742, Richmond played a key role in the American Revolution, helping to ignite the movement with Patrick Henry’s famous, “Give me Liberty or Give me Death” speech. Modern-day Richmond is home to a variety of business, from law and finance to federal and state governmental agencies.

Richmond Overview

By the turn of the 20th century Richmond was the most densely populated city in the southern United States, boasting a population of 85,000. The city was selected as the site of the Fifth District of the Federal Reserve Bank based on the city’s central geographic location and significance as a commercial and financial center. In 1929, Philip Morris and Company, Ltd. opened its first U.S. factory in Richmond, which helped boost local economy. Other companies followed in their footsteps, including the American Oil Company, Federal Paperboard Company, Inc, Porter Hayden, and Standard Paper Manufacturing Company. Currently, Richmond is home to the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, one of thirteen U.S. courts of appeals, as well as international companies such as Genworth Financial and CapitalOne. Richmond is also a thriving educational community, housing both the University of Virginia and the University of Richmond within its borders.
