    In 1881, both the VA and TN sides of Bristol designated the center of the city's main thoroughfare, State Street, as the VA/TN state line. Tomorrow, thousands of people will fill these #downtown streets with music, food, dancing and crafts in celebration of Bristol's heritage as the Birthplace of Country Music! #Virginia #stateline #countrymusic #loveva #vatravel #Tennessee #mainstreet #musicfestival @bristolrhythm #rhythmandroots
    #Downtown #Staunton is filled with amazing #architecture including the Romanesque-Revival Marquis Building seen here. It was designed by T.J. Collins in 1895 (he designed nearly 200 buildings throughout the city in various styles during the #Victorian Era). Note the large umbrella fixed to the corner of the turret! #loveva #virginia #vatravel #mainstreet #vais4lovers #oldschoolva
