Rosie the Riveter

We took a trip to Richmond to visit the Rosie the Riveter National Park. Back in the 1940's there was a lot of WWII industrial work happening in Richmond building ships, etc. In this free visitor center, they also exhibit the concept of Victory Gardens, housing challenges due to the new influx of workers, and the necessity for childcare while women went to work. It's well done, educational, and worth a visit.
