You've done it again, L'Syd -- provided an outstanding pictorial essay on another Virginia city. Excellent!!

Unlike the Colonial and Jeffersonian influence in much of central and eastern Virginia, Staunton (pronounced Stanton) is a staunchion of Victorian integrity. Its commercial structures flush with the streets lend a bigger city feel.

The winsome young ladies of Mary Baldwin College located on a hilltop near downtown add considerably to the city's charm.

I think the Stonewall Jackson Hotel has recently undergone a major overhaul.

About 35 miles west of Charlottesville at the junction of I-64 and I-81, Staunton is a complete contrast to its larger sister.
