Overview

Images of America: Christiansburg is a finely tuned compilation of photographs depicting the growth and character of a rural, southwestern Virginia community. Christiansburg proper is situated along the edge of a verdant plateau that rises between the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains and is incorporated into the New River watershed. Early settlers were attracted to the region's rich alluvial soil and tempered climates. By the mid-18th century, permanent homesteads began to dot the gentle landscape and the town was officially incorporated in 1792. These photographs follow Christiansburg from its beginnings as a popular stagecoach stop to the 20th century, documenting progress in education, industry, and commerce.
