From the Culpeper Star Exponent:
U.S. 15 named a Virginia Byway
By Allison Brophy Champion, Staff Writer
First came the “Journey Through Hallowed Ground.” Now the naturally and historically rich corridor along U.S. 15 in Virginia has earned acknowledgement from the Commonwealth Transportation Board as an official Virginia Byway.
The approximate 66-mile route begins at the Potomac River in Loudon County ... and into Madison and Orange counties.
“This road, with its beautiful scenic vistas and incredible historic sites, is a treasure,” said Gov. Tim Kaine in a news release Tuesday. “We’re proud to have it as a jewel in the Virginia byway program.” (link)
It is truly a treasure. One worth exploring. Next time you need to get from Gordonsville to Culpeper to Warrenton and beyond, take U.S. 15. You'll never forget it.
