John Fowlkes constructed Hyde Park in the late
18th century; it was expanded in the 19th and
early 20th centuries. Richmond department
store-owner William B. Thalhimer Sr. purchased
the property in 1938 and created a haven,
training program, and model agricultural community for Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany.
He rescued several dozen young students of
Gross Breesen Agricultural Institute in modern-day Poland. They established dairy and truck
farms, created a modern chicken farm, and
cultivated tobacco. With immigration halted,
the farm did not become economically viable
and it closed in the spring of 1941. Later,
many of the students fought against Germany in
World War II.
