You’d be hard pressed not to be impressed by the Town of St. Paul. This Southwest Virginia town, which marked its 100th birthday last year with the publication of St. Paul, Virginia, A Centennial Journey, has been listed on both the state and federal register of historical districts. It is also one of only four Virginia Main Street Communities designated by the Commonwealth.
Its website proclaims that “Our leaders and citizens are working together to grow our hometown into a recognized eco-epicenter, both economically and ecologically, demonstrating the two “e‘s” can co-exist and flourish, while maintaining our unique small town character and heritage. Through partnerships with regional and state entities, as well as our own ingenuity and hard work, we are doing just that.”
One need only visit St. Paul to feel the transformation. Today, you’ll have a chance to meet the musicians, artisans, and other representatives behind this small-town success story from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at Heartwood: Southwest Virginia’s Artisan Gateway. It will surely spark your interest in paying a visit to St. Paul.
Take a look at what’s in store.
