RICHMOND — The first black Girl Scout troop in the South, which began meeting on the campus of Virginia Union University in 1932, is among five historic sites and people being recognized by the state.

Each will be honored with narrative markers approved by the Virginia Department of Historic Resources. The other markers will recognize the first coeducational Presbyterian training school for lay workers, located in Richmond; the First African Baptist Church in Richmond; a pioneering agricultural educator from Southwest Virginia; and a popular illustrator and artist from Salem.
