This October 1955 image shows the old Trinity Methodist Church, which had torn down its steeple months earlier after Hurricane Hazel damaged it beyond repair the year before. Next to the Church Hill building is the used car lot owned by Howard H. Hughes, aka “Mad Man Dapper Dan,” who was an eccentric and flamboyant Richmond businessman. In 1965 he had the “Half Moon” house built for his family on Cherokee Road overlooking the James River.
