History

The town of Staunton has a single architectural advantage over the majority of small towns located in Shenandoah Valley of Virginia, and it is when it dodged the Civil War unharmed. Most of its 18th and early 19th century homes are marvellously looked after. John Lewis, a Scottish-Irish immigrant, and his family constructed the first ranch in the area in 1732, and many of its early inhabitants were Scots-Irish.

The town’s early history is spoken like a catalog of small-town America, from establishing its first volunteer fire department in the year 1790 to incorporating with a populace of 800 in 1801 and the location of Mary Baldwin College (formerly Augusta Female Seminary) in 1842. Virginia Central Railroad’s arrival in 1854 has made this small town a transportation hub for western Virginia. Woodrow Wilson arrived two years later, born to a local Presbyterian minister and his wife. His return in 1912 as president-elect was the most extravagant celebration in the town’s history.

Area and Climate

Staunton is a self-governing city in the US state of Virginia, and its population was 23,746 as of the 2010 census. It is the county seat of surrounding Augusta County; however, these two are individual jurisdictions. This town is Staunton-Waynesboro Metropolitan Statistical Area’s principal city that had a population of 118,502 in 2010.

Staunton is known to be the hometown of Woodrow Wilson who is the 28th president of the United States. It is also the home of Mary Baldwin College, which is generally a women’s college, and Stuart Hall, a private co-ed prep school, as well as Virginia for the Deaf and Blind.

The town gets 38” of rain every year (higher than the US average of 37) and 20” of snowfall (lower than the US city average of 25). Staunton typically has 216 sunny days every year, with July having the highest temperature (85 degrees) and January having the lowest temperature (22 degrees).

Real Estate and Cost of Living

An approximate value of a condo or house in 2000 was $88,000 and $171,924 in 2013. A lot of historic homes in this town that were constructed between the 18th and 19th century stand still and are preserved beautifully. Purchasing and restoring a historic home provides possible benefits including special financing, future tax breaks or funding programs.

As of March 2013, the town’s cost of living index is 83.4, which is lower than the US average of 100.

Lifestyle and Things to Do

Downtown Staunton boasts of its 9 fine art galleries that can be found within walking distance of each other. These galleries feature jewelry, sculpture, paintings, photography, blown glass and a lot more.

Blue Ridge Parkway is another attraction that is worth visiting. It is one of the most well-known components of the National Park System, with exceptional scenery and tons of recreational opportunities. It is “America’s Favorite Drive” that winds its way through past seemingly endless vistas and mountain meadows. There are old farmsteads, historic structures and split-rail fences that go well with the magnificent views of neighboring valleys and distant mountains.

Gypsy Hill Park is an extensive, 214-acre park that features baseball and football stadiums, 2 playgrounds, tennis courts, 3 youth baseball fields, horseshoe pits, volleyball courts, a public golf course, lake, gymnasium, bandstand, public pool, Duck Pond, and Gypsy Express mini train. There are also pavilions with picnic tables and outdoor cooking facilities spread all through the park. Additionally, the circular roadway is a select   ed play street and is ideal for rollerbladers, walkers and bicyclists.
