    Wytheville, Virginia - Wytheville KOA

    June 18, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☁️ 22 °C

    Here we are now in Virginia. As the State Slogan says"Virginia Is For Lovers", that's us. We've chosen to stop in Wytheville only as a stop of convenience. We're not rushing our trip's end, but rather taking our time to lessen the pain of long distance driving. It's nice not to have a schedule or deadline.

    Yes, this stop is at another KOA campground. Rather than exploring new campgrounds, we have elected to take the easy way and stay in KOAs where we can count on good locations and quality. Like what you would expect in a favorite hotel chain.

    The town of Wytheville is a small town located in southwest Virginia, and is named after the first signer of the Declaration of Independence, George Wythe. Not to be outdone by the early years, Wytheville can also claim a 20th century famous citizen, First Lady Edith Bolling Wilson, second wife of President Woodrow Wilson. This First Lady was a direct decendant of Pocahontas and her great great grandmother was a sister to Thomas Jefferson. Not too shabby!

    Yes, history runs deep in Virginia and is somewhat epitomized by small Virginia towns like Wytheville. Founded in 1792, having famous citizens, and significant Civil War skirmishes all are part of Wytheville and the heritage so valued by the South.
