SkyWatch Friday-Fincastle


Botetourt County Courthouse . Fincastle

Today I had to run over to Fincastle to pick up my packet for Tuesday’s election which I’m working again! I’ve been helping with the elections since 2016! I do enjoy it though!

Roanoke Typewriter Sales Co.

321 Campbell Ave SE . Roanoke

Yep, permanently closed. I’m thankful that I grew up in a time when me and my friends all wanted typewriters for Christmas and could not wait until we could take typing class in Jr. High…things were just so much simpler then!

Sign’s 2 - Local Politics

I don’t think this person likes Commonwealth Attorney Baskerville...I’m not familiar with any of this, we were just driving through!

Tuesday’s Treasures - Old Nansemond County Courthouse

524 North Main Street . Suffolk . VA

A couple of weeks ago Nick and I took a little trip to the Great Dismal Swamp. Our hotel was near this old courthouse which is now the visitor’s center. We didn’t get a chance to tour it this time but I’d definitely love to go back and see it...snapped this pic while stopped at a light! 

From Virginia.Org:

“(1755) The original structure was completely burned by the British in 1779, but was rebuilt shortly after the Revolutionary War. During the Civil War, the courthouse served as part of the headquarters for Major General Peck of the Union Army. In 1837, the courthouse burned again during the "Great Fire" and was rebuilt and used until 1998. The Courthouse has undergone an extensive renovation and has been repurposed as the Suffolk Visitor Center and Tourism office. This Suffolk landmark is also home to the Great Dismal Swamp Gallery.”

Monday Murals - The Witt Stop

 The Witt Stop . Buchanan

Recently driving through Buchanan we noticed this new mural/business. The mural is pretty cool, depicting the area.  If you zoom in you can even find this location on the mural! It’s like a mural inside of a mural!
