The Valentine Richmond History Center organizes outstanding tours. Thanks for spotlighting this one!

Thought you might want to know that St. Paul’s recently launched an online Tiffany Resource Center with information about our eleven Tiffany works.

That address is: http://www.stpauls-episcopal.org/tiffany.
