Stafford County

Check out the new book by Anita L. Dodd and M. Amanda Lee on Stafford County. It's part of Arcadia Publishing's Then & Now series that takes old photographs of historic structures--some of which no longer exist--and juxtaposes them with modern views of the property. The authors include helpful notes on the buildings' histories.

Look for Corinne Melchers' studio, the Hotel Virginia, Brent's Mill, Spring Knoll Farm, and other sometimes forgotten sites.
