The House on Fuller Street, by Beverly Tucker.

A collection of memories of the people and places in the African American neighborhoods in small town Lexington, Virginia, from the days of emancipation, through segregation, and to the present day. The recollections were initially recorded as oral histories by the Historic Lexington Foundation.

“A strong, sensitive portrait of a diminishing community that has survived long years of discrimination, war and hardship … captures its tenacious pride and dignity” — Charles Bodie, author, Remarkable Rockbridge: The Story of a Virginia County

The Architecture of Historic Rockbridge, by J. Daniel Pezzoni.

A new look at the county as well as its central cities, Buena Vista and Lexington, as well as its smaller communities. A rare combination of engaging writing and meticulous scholarship, suffused with insights into familiar buildings (and many not so familiar), organized by structure uses and styles. More than 300 illustrations, many in color and most of them new contemporary photos or rare vintage pictures.
