Went north of Leesburg on 15 to this one. It is on 15 south at 39.152224,-77.540597.

One of the older sign placements, although it looks like it's been updated to new material.

Nice farm just to the east of the marker. I don't know if it's a VA farm or WV farm, but it sure is scenic.

Okay, I went back and got a shot of the other side of Z-118, the county line marker for Bedford and Franklin counties located on Rt. 122. I'm also reposting the photos of the south view of the sign.

A few notes about today’s adventure
1. I brought the camera but forgot the memory card. Doh! Pictures are iphone quality.
2. I found several signs that are not marked on the Google Maps database of page one. Haven’t checked to see if they are listed on the official Historical Markers website but I doubt it.
3. It took me 90 minutes to upload, edit and type this post. Almost as long as it took to find them in the first place. Lots of man hours going into this thread and the final product.

This is a county marker so there is a front and back picture.
Not much shoulder to park on here so in my rush to keep moving I didn’t get a pic of the bike, guess you’ll have to trust that I rode there…

Virginia / West Virginia Border - Rt 250 - Highland Co.

Oops, almost forgot this one. This is my last VA marker from the ride.

Located about 16-18 miles west of Monterey on Rt 250.




Historical Marker at the WV / VA State line on Rt 250.




View eastbound entering Highland County, Virginia. (Actually, we're on our way home back into WV and just turned around for this photo. Barney says, "I Love You, Virginia!"




Same Marker - Side #2





View westbound entering West Virginia. Look closely and you will see two (yes, 2) WV Markers just ahead on the left. The first one is pretty visible, the 2nd one is about 30-40 feet past it. To take a look at them, click here for Madstrom's post on the WV Markers site.
