Joseph Bryan Park is a 262-acre public space in Richmond that was established as a memorial to Joseph Bryan (1845-1908), the founder and publisher of the Richmond Times-Dispatch newspaper. It was given to the city in 1910 by his widow Belle Steward Bryan and their children. A monumental stone arch was added in the memory of Belle in 1912 by the City Council at a cost of $5000. The park entrance was relocated and the present gate was erected by the Turnpike Authority in the late 1950's using stone and wrought-iron fencing and bronze commemoration plaques from the original arch.
