Here, nearby includes our sister towns, Falkland and Farmville. You might have trouble keeping all us F-towns apart until you live here.
Falkland hasn’t much these days but a good country restaurant and a great nature are / boat launch.
But Farmville’s one of the up & comingest of our region’s towns, with a charming, walkable Main Street.
Of special note:
ECU’s Glass Station
Woodside Antiques, though primarily an auction house, it has retail hours and is also like a museum, its window displays changed regularly and always with style.
