Mountain visit (3)



Visit to Clifton Forge.
A town in Allegheny county Va..
Straight ahead is the town hall 


Old cemetery on side of the hill

Fine old homes in the town.   Many in need of some TLC.

there was a sign on one street that stated a Revitalization Project going on in the town.  Good to see that.



We were hoping for nicer weather since it is Spring to be able to get out and check out some of the little shops but maybe next trip.

Would have been even nice to be able to get a shot with out the power lines running so heavy across the street.




We are leaving with a view of the town.

Looks like an old four square home that caught my eye.

going back

You can see the green on the tree limbs. Maybe Spring is arriving here.

A short video heading up mountain and arriving in Town of Clifton Forge.
I need to visit the Forge here on the next visit for sure.

  1. This was extra fun for me to see, Betsy. My Nanny was born in Clifton Forge. It's been years since we've been back. You've made me want to visit again. Enjoy the rest of your weekend, my friend. ♥

  2. That poor town has looked kind of sad for decades. At one time it was a boom town.

  3. I enjoyed the video, the mist through the trees enhanced the beauty although it must have made the driving harder.

    1. The driving wasn't that bad. Not many cars on the road and ones that were all had headlamps on.

  4. Dearest Betsy,
    Being in the mountains you often are dealing with foggy weather it seems like!
    Hopefully those precious old buildings do find some TLC.
    Hugs,
    Mariette
