Fauquier Fences and Walls

Fauquier County is in a pretty area on the eastern side of the Blue Ridge. Home to estates, horse ranches and wineries, it is one of the highest-income counties in the U.S. (There are poor people there too but the average income is very high because of the number of millionaires and billionaires.)

We spent a day there during Historic Garden Week. I made it a point to photograph some fences for Gosia's blog linkup.  I'm also sharing with Through My Lens

Fauquier County was established in 1759. According to an online encylopedia article, is was named for Francis Fauquier, a Lieutenant Governor of Virginia who supposedly won the land in a poker game.
