This issue is a blast from the past, starting with a feature on The Virginia Squires, the state’s 1970s American Basketball Association team where Dr. J. and George Gerwin got their starts. Follow a day in the life of families trying to keep old-fashioned dairies alive and explore Erye Hall, home of Virginia’s oldest garden. We also take an in-depth look at the high-performing public schools in Northern Virginia and the students that inhabit them, and see the remodeled Alexandria home of George Washington’s personal physician. All this, plus downtown Culpeper, recipes that delve into the endless possibilities of eggs, the romantic Swiss town of Lausanne and a Virginian’s Olympic hopes. Check out the latest issue of Virginia Living today.
