Building in Rockbridge County, Virginia
Rockbridge County and the towns and villages within its borders enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery and diverse culture of any place in the United States.
And a wonderful place to live, to go to school, to raise children, to retire. Located at the midpoint of the Great Valley of Virginia . . . or at the end of the Shenandoah Valley, bordered by the Blue Ridge Mountains on the east and the Appalachian Mountains on the west, situated close to the intersection of two major interstates (I-81 and I-64), home to Washington and Lee University, Virginia Military Institute and Southern Virginia University.
Rockbridge County and its largest town, Lexington, provides its residents with daily visual treats . . . its mountains . . . its farms . . . its colleges . . . And unlimited cultural and educational opportunities. Home to W&L and VMI, Lexington is a beautiful town, with historic homes and modern construction, all blended seamlessly into a lovely mix that slowly melds with the county farmland and the lovely vistas that abound everywhere.
There is much history here, with the area settled by Scotch Irish Presbyterians in the mid 1700s, dramatic involvement in the Civil War and its aftermath, and the transformation of the town and county into a modern economic, cultural and educational center.
