I have heard some folks say that Partlow is not a desirable area to live in within Spotsylvania if you are not from there. I have lived a few miles north of there for at least 10 years and things have been ok with an exception or two.

Is it true? The most that I hear about it is that it is "a whole different world" and folks like to 4 wheel over there. They love to 4 wheel over here too and while I don't really like it, not sure what the difference would be.

I found a nice house down there on several acres which seems pretty nice.

Thanks.

Never heard of it but regardless - is Spotsylvania County in Northern Virginia?

Yeah, you need to post in the regular VA section. Anything south of Fredericksburg is not NoVA.

There are parts of Spotsylvania which are technically north of parts of Fredericksburg and vice versa.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spotsy...unty,_Virginia

2nd sentence:

"Spotsylvania County is a county in the U.S. state of Virginia. As of the 2016 estimate, the population was 132,010.[5] Its county seat is Spotsylvania Courthouse.[6] Spotsylvania County is a part of Northern Virginia and the Baltimore–Washington metropolitan area."

I have been posting Spotsylvania posts and receiving responses for years on end with no issues.

When did things change around here?

Thanks.

You can post anywhere you like. You are unlikely to get a response about Partlow in the NoVA forum.

I would refrain from using Wikipedia as a source, as anyone can edit almost anything. Why don't you check that same paragraph again?

Spotsylvania County is part of the Washington DC metro area (at least according to the Census Bureau) but agree it is definitely on the fringe. You might indeed find more assistance on the general Virginia forum.

My response wasn't intended to be semantical in nature. The wiki post was just a tiny drop in the sea of google but it is a reasonable resource. I doubt that anyone in the regular Virginia forum would be any more or less likely to help as they usually think of the Fredericksburg area as NOVA e.g. something that they are generally not concerned with.

Again I ask, when did asking about Spotsylvania become something that has not been done in the NOVA forum?

I'll go ahead and post in the Virginia Forum as well, but don't want this thread to become an excuse to push Fredericksburg area posts away.

I responded to your post on the Virginia forum and you never responded back. So people do respond but we can't help if the OP does not come back.

Yes, absolutely. It's in the Washington metro area even.
