Overview

To see Virginia is to visit our nation's beginnings, the very place where, in 1607, English colonists established Jamestown, the first permanent European settlement in the New World. And to explore further is to rediscover much of the nation's history, viewed through the prism of presidents' birthplaces, Revolutionary War and Civil War battlefields, the cradle of the Confederacy, historic plantation homes, and more.

From the colonial triangle of Jamestown-Yorktown-Williamsburg to the coal-mining towns and rural farmlands of Appalachia, historic Virginia unfolds before us in this photographic tour led by Virginia natives Pat and Chuck Blackley. Along with the state's cultural riches, the Blackleys show us the breathtaking beauty of scenic Virginia, with its pristine beaches, coastal tideplains, lush forests, and rolling mountains, including the spectacular Blue Ridge Parkway and Shenandoah National Park. Our Virginia, is a statewide adventure, a multifaceted celebration of our nation's true birthplace in all its historic, cultural, and natural splendor.
