Mt. Solon Grocery

Augusta County, Virginia 

Mt. Solon started in 1799 with the establishment of a mill on the small creek that now runs through the center of town. Over the years several businesses sprang up and around 1900 the Chesapeake Western Railway laid tracks through the town. The town's prosperity would soon come to an abrupt end. The railway was abandoned in 1930 and the mill closed in 1939.  Today, the town exists as a small residential community.
