I love small towns. And Lexington, Virginia, right up in the Blue Ridge, is a real stunner. Go there sometime. There are old-fashioned inns from the 19th century right downtown, and if you don't go on Washington and Lee University's parents' weekend, you might even get a room.

A few pictures of Eliza, my mother, the president's house that Robert E. Lee built, and Lee Chapel, where R.E.L. is interred:

1885 visitors to your site... hrm. good year. That's when Huckleberry Finn was published and when AT&T incorporated. Pasteur concocted a successful rabies vaccine, the Congo formed and Good Housekeeping was first published :)
don't know where that came from, but it was a fun to track down the factoids:)
