Against a gorgeous backdrop of mountain ranges and centuries-old hardwoods, as much a part of the town’s history as its buildings and people, Blacksburg virtually hums with the legacies of its past.
A walk along Main Street and through downtown’s original 16 blocks uncovers customs and culture at every turn, an appealing history that inspires the here and now.
The opening of the grand, turn-of-the-century Alexander Black House introduced a centrally located cultural center to the community, allowing Blacksburg’s past never seemed more present.
