There are many locations around the countryside of SW Virginia, in a region which borders North Carolina. This area was once filled with tobacco farms and communities that supported them. Times have changed. I present here a few photographs that record what remains today in those locations.
Entering what once was a small, but thriving, town of Axton, Virginia, between Martinsville and Danville,
This was once a train depot which supported hauling farm products to market.
The original Post Office has been converted into a store selling local products, to whom I am not sure. I saw no signs of activity the day I was there.
The tattered remains of a small farmhouse. When I visit places like this I wonder who lived there, for how long, and when was the home abandoned.
