Welcome back ADD. We live in Lexington Virginia (pop 7000) which is 57 miles north of Roanoke in the Southwestern part of Virginia.
My wife, who I met when I was pioneering in Kane PA, and I purchased a home in the historic district that was built in 1879. This is a town founded in 1749 and from my office window I can see house's built in three different centuries. George Washington endowed what became Washington University and Robert Lee became president after the civil war and when he passed on....... the University was renamed Washington and Lee. Stonewall Jackson taught at our military school........ Virginia Military institute.
It was my honor to be asked to serve on the board of the Lexington Historic Foundation which I did for seven years helping to preserve historic buildings which contributed to our tourism which accounts for 12% of our employment.
So I can appreciate your pleasure in the historic past.
I've always enjoyed your posts........... it's good to have you post again.
