A visit to the town of Orange

Orange, Virginia 

A couple of days before Christmas, I drove over to the town of Orange. It was a cold afternoon.

The Orange and Alexandria Railroad was established in 1854 to link Alexandria with central Virginia. The railroad was of strategic importance during the Civil War and the buildings surrounding the station comprise the earliest commercial structures in town. The tracks are now part of the Norfolk Southern system

Join me this week for a visit to the town of Orange and explore this historic district.
