Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The charming town of Abingdon is nestled in southwestern Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains and situated along the Holston River. Originally known as Wolf Hills-a name bestowed upon the town by Daniel Boone-Abingdon was renamed in honor of Martha Washington's home in England. The town today enjoys a rich and varied palate suitable for residents and tourists, young and old alike. Images of America: Abingdon, Virginia celebrates the town's singular heritage by offering readers a rare find of almost 200 photographs, showcasing many well-known town entities, personalities, and businesses from the past century. These images portray such structures as the Stonewall Jackson Female Institute, the Abingdon Academy, the Belmont Hotel, and the Martha Washington Inn, as well as the Barter Theater, unique in its exchange of food and household goods for performances. Long-gone but rarely forgotten individuals also make appearances, allowing newcomers the chance to meet the people behind the names and longtime residents an opportunity to visit with old friends.
