Abstract: Institutional records of the elderly care facility, the Richmond Home for Ladies, located in Richmond, Virginia.


The collection includes minutes, committee reports, correspondence, census records for the Home, account and treasurer's ledgers, financial statements, tax records, regulation and licensing documents, property titles and deeds, brochures, newsletters, application materials, admissions policies, drug and medical ledgers, guest records, and photographs and scrapbooks.


The collection has been organized into three series. Series 1 consists of administrative records and has been divided into the following sub-series: 1.1 Board of Lady Managers, 1.2 Men's Board of Directors, 1.3 Board of Directors, 1.4 Guild, and 1.5 General Administrative Records. Series 2 consists of operational records and has been divided into the following sub-series: 2.1: General Operational Records, 2.2: Guest Records, 2.3: Photo Albums, Photographs, and Scrapbooks, and 2.4: Donor Plates. Series 3 contains the records of Covenant Woods, the modern successor to the Richmond Home for Ladies since 2001.


The Richmond Home for Ladies, an elderly care facility for women, was established in 1883, eighteen years after the Great Evacuation Fire of 1865 at the end of the Civil War. By 1873, approximately 80,000 white widows of Confederate soldiers were applying for financial support. A great impetus for construction of the Home was concern for those women who had lost their husbands and sons to the war and had inadequate resources to care of themselves; the Home was to provide these women an alternative to the almshouse.

The Home was the outcome of collaboration between two physicians, Dr. William W. Parker and Dr. D.H. Gregg. Dr. Gregg was able to ensure approximately $10,000 in Petersburg-Railway bonds for the construction of a home, while Dr. Parker secured support from Dr. Moses D. Hoge, pastor of the Second Presbyterian Church, and Bishop John Cowper Granberry of Centenary Methodist Church. Requirements for residency stated that the women had to be age sixty years or older and be in good standing with either the Presbyterian or Methodist Church. Guests were accepted on the basis of need with an admission fee of $200 and turned over all their assets to the Home for total life care. They received all meals, medical and dental care, medications, clothes, burial expenses, etc. In later years, the ladies received a check each month for spending money, made up from social security money and 3% interest from the assets turned over to the home at time of entry.

Formal inauguration of the home took place on Monday, October 22, 1883 at 515 North Seventh Street. A matron, Sarah M. Woodson, was placed in charge of seven residents: Jane E. Womack, Lizzie Pleasants, Catherine M. Brockenbrough, Eliza A. Duval, Evelin P. Maynard, Mary M. Forbs and Mary A. Allen. By 1913 the Home was filled to capacity and a lot was purchased at the corner of Stuart Avenue and Mulberry Street. In February 1914, 2620 Stuart Avenue was ready for occupancy and thirty ladies were moved from the old home to the new. The property on North Seventh Street became the headquarters for the Phyllis Wheatley Branch of the Y.W.C.A. It continued to be used by the Y.W.C.A. until it was demolished in 1961 to make way for the Coliseum and other proposed centers.

From its beginning, and until 1987, the Home operated under the dual management of two Boards composed of volunteers from participating churches: the Men's Board of Directors and the Board of Lady Managers. Following traditional gender roles, the Men's Board of Directors controlled business affairs and oversaw the endowment, while the Board of Lady Managers was responsible for the caretaking of residents and day-to-day administration. It was not until March 1987 that the two boards were dissolved and a Board of Directors was established with nine men and nine women, all drawn from the existing boards. The new Board was to be a governing board while a staff handled daily operations. The Home remains in operation today as Covenant Woods and now accepts both female and male residents.

Researchers may be interested in viewing the collection as a source for Women's History, Progressive Era History, the history of elder-care, and post-Civil War institutional history.

Series 1. Administrative Records, 1883-2000.

Series 1.1. Board of Lady Managers, 1883-1990.

Spanning from the inaugural year of the Home in 1883 through 1990, the Board of Lady Managers records include financial documentation, such as account ledgers, treasurer's ledgers, and receipt books detailing money doled out to residents based on social security income and asset interest. Moreover, management of the home is covered through correspondence, minutes, and committee reports. All members of the Board of Lady Managers were required to serve on a committee. The number of committees changed over the years, but typically included amongst others a House Committee (assisting the Hostess in overseeing the Home), a Visiting Committee (to visit with residents and encourage others to visit), a Sick and Nurses Committee (to visit with the sick and supervise nurses), and an Admissions Committee (to interview all applicants). Information about Board members can be gleaned from member lists, directories, and roll books. Please note that while the Board of Lady Managers was disbanded in 1987, there is some overlap in dates here with the Board of Directors papers as several former members retained their positions or activities.

Series 1.2. Men's Board of Directors, 1898-1998.


Spanning the period from 1898 to 1998, records of the Men's Board of Directors are primarily financial in nature and include contribution lists, tax records, and financial statements. SCC registration statements can also be found. Managing of finances is included in minute books and correspondence, and information on members can be obtained from member lists. Please note that the minutes of the Men's Board of Directors are incomplete as much of the early years were destroyed in a fire. Researchers may also note that while the Men's Board of Directors was disbanded in 1987, there is some overlap until 1998 as some members retained their positions or activities with the newly formed Board of Directors.

The Board of Directors papers consist of minutes, member lists, disclosure statements, financial statements, and market analysis and assessment. Of note are the papers of the Long-Range Planning Committee (1988-1995) which was looking for a way to increase applicants and ultimately resulted in the formation of Covenant Woods. Please note that while minutes for the Board of Directors exist for 1986, this was actually a planning exercise and separate boards remained until 1987.

Series 1.4. Guild Records, 1987-2000


Following the merging of the Men's Board of Directors and the Board of Lady Managers in 1987, a Guild was formed to cover duties formerly the responsibility of the Board of Lady Managers, namely organizing activities for residents and encouraging community involvement and support with the Home. As stated in the minutes of the newly formed Board of Directors in 1987, "Some of the functions of the former Boards are being assigned to the administrator of the Home and staff. A Guild is being formed to provide the services which will enhance the happiness, comfort, and welfare of the residents." The Guild was responsible to the Liaison Committee appointed by the Board of Trustees, and would coordinate activities with the administrator of the Home. Records span the period of 1987-2000 and include minutes, treasurer's reports, and yearbooks.

Series 1.5. General Administrative Records, 1883-2000

Series 3: Covenant Woods Materials, 1995-2008


Covenant Woods, located in Hanover County, Virginia, opened in 2001 with the purpose of providing "a continuing care retirement community in which elderly men and women of respectable character may be provided a comfortable home and health care." As before, the institution was to be run by a Board of Directors consisting of twenty-one members. Members of the Board are to be in good standing with the Methodist or Presbyterian Church and there are not to be more than twelve Methodists or twelve Presbyterians on the Board at any one time. This series contains records detailing the operation of Covenant Woods from its inception in 1995 through 2008. Included are development plans, documentation of the Richmon Memorial Hospital Conversion Project, by-laws, minutes, annual reports, finances, marketing plans and committee meetings, residency and care agreements, newsletters, and slides.
