Joseph Bryan Park is a 262-acre park given in 1909 to the city of Richmond “to be a free park for the use and benefit of all its citizens” by Belle Stewart Bryan in memory of her husband, the publisher of the Richmond Times. Its landscape reflects a broad historic panorama incorporating its 18th-century plantation and mill sites, its use in 1800 as a meeting place of members of the slave rebellion led by Gabriel, and its subsequent development as a city park expressing the City Beautiful movement. In the 1920s, accommodations were made for automobile visitation and in 1952 the city of Richmond developed a major azalea garden there.
