Head down 168 through Great Bridge to Ballahack Road, turn right and head towards the Navy's NW Transmitter Station. Go 2.6 miles past the station to Bunch Walnuts Road. Turn right. The bridge is ~1/4 miles from the intersection.

Well, I am trying Nice Job on the Map Swashplate. Thanks for all the help Hburg and Swash.

If you want pics go to Swash's map, it's way better then mine......but as I said I am trying. The Mrs. UpST8 is home now and I guess I need to pay her some attention before she pulls my meal pass.

Looking foward to the next tag

I'll pull mine off my sig line..no reason to have two of them. It's easy to add the pics to the "point" pop-ups. Let me know when you will be avail and I can do it for you via a free for home use software program.

Clue 1...
By tradition this early courthouse's location was held under a large elm tree at a nearby plantaion, the home of Col. Miles Cary Jr. In 1810 this county's first brick courthouse was built on this site. It also served as clerk's office and jail. In 1884 a large courthouse was erected on the same tract, the clerk retaining the old building. Both served this county (later city) until merger with a city on July 1,1958.

Clue 2...
George Armstrong Custer enjoyed the dubious honor of making several ascents in ballon to observe the nearby Confederate defenses between Lee's Mill and Dam No. 1.

Clue 3...
This has been registerd as a Virginia Historic Landmark.

Here are the pics and the tag is the front of the building where the columns are.



here is the back side


and a few neat pics from the display info board...

Grab!!

I was going to workout before work today, but I figured a 100 miles on the bike would be physical enough with the wind and all. Great little place, never would have known about it. There were some folks there remodeling the sidewalk and I see they have plans for remodeling the whole place. Thanks for the tag!
