Wish Granted: A young lady’s Broadway experience

One glance at her room and it’s no secret that Faith Miller is crazy about “Wicked,” the musical. Sitting in front of autographed pictures and the posters of green-faced witches on her walls is a suitcase – a prop – used in the actual Broadway show a few weeks ago.

Dutch Gap started this week in 1864

Many residents of Chesterfield have visited the Dutch Gap Conservation Area and the Citie of Henricus Historical Park at one time or another. If you walk out past Henricus to the Point or visit the boat ramp at Dutch Gap, you are looking at the results of a historical event that began this week, 147 years ago.
