Mann S. Valentine is regarded as the founder of the Valentine Richmond History Center. His fortune from national and international sales of Valentine's Meat Juice, a health tonic, allowed him to amass a collection worthy of display in Richmond's first private museum. When he died, he left the Wickham House and money for the museum to his brother, sculptor Edward Valentine. The sculptor opened the museum in 1898, and at his death in 1930, he bequeathed his own collection to the museum as well.
The Valentine Richmond History Center is a Richmond treasure that is just a short drive from Maury Place at Monument.
