Published in October 2015, The Architecture of Historic Rockbridge, by J. Daniel Pezzoni, is abundantly illustrated with more than 300 images, with about half in full color. It’s not only exhaustively researched but also that rare literary bird: a work of important scholarship that’s engagingly written. Its 300 pages will captivate armchair readers and historians alike.
This book reflects the wonderfully rich and diverse architectural history of Rockbridge County, Virginia, including Lexington and Buena Vista. Organized thematically, the book traces the area’s architecture from the 18th century through the post-World War II period.
The Architecture of Historic Rockbridge is a fitting companion to The
Architecture of Historic Lexington (1977) by Royster Lyle Jr. and Pamela
Hemenway Simpson, with photographs by Sally Mann. They belong
together on every bookshelf.
