"Wash house" on Route 33

Lydia, Virginia 

We photographed this house on the eastern slope of the Blue Ridge Mountains in January 2011, but the wash was not out that day (see this post). I have been meaning to get back and get a picture of the house when the wash was on the line on the front porch. This picture was taken the last weekend in October while there was still some autumn color on the mountain.

  1. An artful image of a piece of history.

    1. Thanks Don. It would be interesting to know the history of this old place.

  2. Local legend is that the wash is color coded to tell people what is available for purchase-as in moonshine or drugs.
