Virginia Ranks Top of States Adding Historic Districts

To summarize, for the 5th year in a row, Virginia has ranked Number 1 as the state that has added the most historic districts to the National Register of Historic Places. Virginia is also 2nd of the 50 states in the overall number of historic places listed on the NRHP. Ya gotta admit, the one thing that Virginia does best is history.

I really miss the history Virginia has to offer and take my kids as often as possible to visit. As a kid growing up there, our typical field trips were literally out of the history books. President's homes, Williamsburg, Jamestown, and Natural Bridge. I grew up in Danville, the last stand of the confederacy. The whole state is rich in American history. It influenced me enough that I minored in history in college.
