Abingdon, Virginia – Then and Now

Abingdon, Virginia – Then and Now


Abingdon, first named Wolf Hills by Daniel Boone, was one of the earliest towns and commercial centers in southwestern Virginia. Named after Martha Washington’s ancestral parish in England, this unique town has weathered many economic changes and has emerged as a leading cultural and arts center for the area. Author and native Donna Gayle Akers has extensively researched and published three other books about the area’s history. Using images from collectors and area historical groups, she shows Abingdon’s past and the excellent preservation of its built environment.
