A White Post in White Post

White Post, Va

Again, I’m back in Virginia on a scenic byway. Cruising down US 340 south of US 50, I came to Va 659, a small road off to the left. Not wanting to stay on major highways, I took the turn, and in about half a mile, I came to the small town of White Post.

6-WhitePost_2991True to its name, there was a white post sitting in the middle of the only intersection in town. Atop the post are street signs for the four roads leading out from it.

Turning left at the post on “Berry’s Ferry” took me out of town. Soon, I was out in the countryside passing by farms, when I came upon the White Post Railroad Station, now standing abandoned and unused.

Returning to the white post for a short photo walk led me to some really old historic buildings and two churches standing side by side.

Walking south from the Post Office one comes to the only business in town. White Post Restorations. If you’re even close to White Post, be sure to stop in, it’s definitely worth your time.
By “restorations” they mean antique car restoration. Cars and all kinds of other vehicles are being restored to look like new, or even better than new. It’s not a showroom or museum, it’s a working restoration shop. Stop in the office and introduce yourself, and ask about taking a look around
