First Freedom Center
Under Construction


The First Freedom Center is rising from the ground at S. 14th and E. Cary Streets in Richmond, Virginia. Later this year, its exhibit space and commemorative monument will proclaim the ringing principle of Thomas Jefferson's Virginia Statute for Religious Freedom, stating: That no man shall be compelled to frequent or support any religious worship, place, or ministry whatsoever, nor shall be enforced, restrained, molested, or burthened in his body or goods, nor shall otherwise suffer on account of his religious opinions or belief; but that all men shall be free to profess, and by argument to maintain, their opinions in matters of religion, and that the same shall in no wise diminish, enlarge, or affect their civil capacities.

We hope to see you there!
