Charlottesville VA

I’ve been interested in my family genealogy for some time. I was told by my cousin that I could join the Daughters of the Revolution because we  are descendants of a Patriot of the Revolutionary War.  His name was William Hamner. We stopped in Charlottesville so I could research some of my ancestors.

Charlottesville turned out to be delightful. There is a walking mall in the center of the town with numerous shops and eateries. Just before leaving we stopped at The Pie Chest.

We shared a piece of Lemon Chess pie which was absolutely delicious.
