More About Christiansburg, Virginia by M. Anna Fariello; Kate Rubick
 
 
 
Overview
Images of America: Christiansburg is a finely tuned compilation of photographs depicting the growth and character of a rural, southwestern Virginia community. Christiansburg proper is situated along the edge of a verdant plateau that rises between the Allegheny and Blue Ridge Mountains and is incorporated into the New River watershed. Early settlers were attracted to the region s rich alluvial soil and tempered climates. By the mid-18th century, permanent homesteads began to dot the gentle landscape and the town was officially incorporated in 1792. These photographs follow Christiansburg from its beginnings as a popular stagecoach stop to the 20th century, documenting progress in education, industry, and commerce."
