For over a century, Staunton has been known as the Queen City of the Shenandoah Valley, not only because of its economic and geographic location in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, but also because of the architectural beauty found in the city.MoreFor over a century, Staunton has been known as the Queen City of the Shenandoah Valley, not only because of its economic and geographic location in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, but also because of the architectural beauty found in the city. Since the early 1800s, prominent architects and builders have left their mark on the hilly terrain of Staunton, resulting in a rich architectural fabric rarely found in small American towns. Once the largest community in the western part of Virginia, Staunton was located in the center of the state until the creation of West Virginia in 1862. The region was a major economic and transportation hub throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries and was home to an affluent mix of people and businesses with the resources available to build handsome buildings.
