BLUE RIDGE MOUNTAIN CULTURE
is unique. At The Claiborne House Bed and Breakfast I blog, post, and tell guests about the different happenings around our Franklin County and nearby Floyd where they can enjoy some real mountain culture. There was wing-dings every night of the week - biscuits and gravy and bluegrass at Dairy Queen every Thursday morning Sept through May.
The Blue Ridge Parkway and The Crooked Road: Virginia's Heritage Music Trail are more than a road, they are a cultural experience of the heritage in these hills. If you simply drive the road you will miss the experience. The people are unique and this melting pot goes back pre-colonial. While the wealthy farmed the commonwealth in the tidewater area, the rest scattered out amongst the not-so-easy to farm areas like the rugged hills and red clay of Franklin County, to make their own.
VIRGINIA IS FOR MOUNTAIN CULTURE LOVERS
