Maury Place at Monument is the perfect lodging for parents and visitors to Virginia Union University in Richmond Virginia. Enrolling 1,500 students, Virginia Union University provides comprehensive liberal arts programs and graduate education for Christian ministries. One of our nation's oldest historically black universities, Virginia Union is the result of the merger of two schools, Richmond Theological Institute and Wayland Seminary, founded in 1865 on the site of Lumplkin's Jail, previously a holding cell for runaway slaves. Both schools were opened at the end of the American Civil War in order to educate newly emancipated African Americans. The university is notable for its emphasis on moral values and ethics, as well as its numerous prominent alumni, including Dwight Jones, Richmond's current mayor.
