Warrenton Presbyterian Church, Warrenton, VA

The present building dates from 1855, but the church was founded in c. 1780.


Fauquier Co. Courthouse, Warrenton, VA

The present structure, dating from the early 20th century, is a near-identical replica of the original 1790 building, which was gutted in 1909 when a fire destroyed about half the town.

Warrenton was named after Joseph Warren, a doctor and general in the American army during the Revolutionary War.  He was the commander who sent Paul Revere on his famous midnight ride.

Fill ‘er Up?

At one time this might have been the happening place along this stretch of Route 32 near Davis, WV.  But not anymore.  I’m through here about once a year and it gets a little more dilapidated every time.

Took this back in June on the annual family trip to Canaan Valley in West Virginia.  

The Candy Factory

Known locally as the Candy Factory, this building has been many things during it’s history including a grain warehouse, a candy factory, and is currently a performing arts center.
