This is the window of an old country store in Bedford County, Virginia. Some of what you see is reflections of the sky and clouds, and part of the roof overhanging the front of the store. You can also see some of the items in the store window; paintings a flower pot, etc.

The Trodden Child

She sells herself, this weathered storm,
With beauty long since spent…
Her stem is worn her life is scorned,
Her soul is torn and bent…

The road first taken, was it her choice?
Or was it the work of fate?
Maybe it was satins friend,
A parent filled with hate…

Most people lay the blame on her,
Her parents they do too…
But no one else can see her past,
A past that’s black and blue…

So go ahead and be the judge
You’re holier than thou,
But in the end the truth be told,
You’ll pay the price somehow…..

Civil War Era Foundry

Civil War Era Foundry

The three furnaces seen in this image were used to make various items during their time. During the American Civil War the furnaces ran 24/7 making cannon balls. We found these in a little town called Eagle Rock, Virginia near the James River and a railroad line; the two most important modes of transportation, during the era, were bateaux and railroad…

The Kanawha Canal ran along the James River from this area to Richmond and was constructed for ease of navigation to avoid the rapids along the then dam-less river. This canal served as a major route for transporting goods from Western Va. to Richmond…the capital of the confederacy.
