What Would I Miss about Strasburg?

view

If you had to leave forever the city from which you usually post, what would you miss most? That's the question posed by City Daily Photo's Theme Day for February.

Since my mailing address is Strasburg, Virginia, I've selected some local photos to illustrate my answer. If I moved away, I would miss:
  1. The mountain scenery
  2. The sense of history
  3. The (usually) quiet streets.


Strasburg is nestled beside the North Fork of the Shenandoah, at a point where the river cut a path around the north end of the Massanutten Range. 


Strasburg was chartered in 1761, but native people lived in the area as long as 10,000 years ago.  The biggest stories in it's written history date to the 1860's when the Civil War raged through here. 

Even though Strasburg is the largest town in Shenandoah County, it is quiet compared to the towns of Northern Virginia.
