Bel Air in Front Royal

bel air
One of the Civil War Trails signs in Front Royal leads you through an industrial area and suddenly you see this mansion on the hill. An interpretative sign explains that it was the home of the diarist Lucy Buck, a young lady who described the Battle of Front Royal. Later in the war, General Lee himself visited Bel Air.

The image to the left shows the part of the sign with Lucy's picture and a location map. Click on it to see a larger version.
