Additional Details:
Monumental Church (Episcopal) stands on Broad Street, on what was formerly Academy Square. It was built as a memorial and upon the site of the old Richmond Theatre, destroyed by fire December 26th 1811, at which time about 60 persons, including Governor G. W. Smith of Virginia, lost their lives; the crypt in the portico contains their ashes and a record of their names.
