Back Issue: February 2011
The hard-working and amiable American foxhounds of the Middleburg Hunt, and a bold plan to rebuild Menokin the 240-year-old home of signer of the Declaration of Independence Francis Lightfoot Lee using structural glass await you in the February 2011 issue of Virginia Living. You will also find a good yarn about how a 19-year-old cub reporter for the Virginian-Pilot got the scoop of the century with his story about the Wright brothers first flight in 1903 as well as a profile of 1940s' Norfolk conman, Jesse Lee Boland, or Master X to his many clients. We offer a humorous account of a skiing date gone awry and visit Harvest Thyme Herb Farm in Shenandoah for a taste of winter root vegetables. We get an inside look at Alderley, a Great Falls estate, which is an impressively modernized version of an English farmhouse. Also inside: Todd Ristau and Roanoke s No Shame Theatre, UVA composer Judith Shatin, news from Norfolk s Chrysler Museum, Lynchburg s most famous poet Anne Spencer, WWII-era hangar dances in Virginia Beach, hula-hooping, ice-skating, gourmet food trucks and more.
