The architecture of the Blacksburg Historic District is an inspiring part of its heritage. These buildings make visible around us the world our ancestors saw as worth striving for. They represent the values of a close-knit community. The tightly-packed commercial streets and the tree-lined residential avenues evoke an attitude toward architectural beauty absent from modern shopping strips and malls. If we are determined to continue living and working among them, we must protect these buildings and their setting from further demolition and decay. The historic structures of Blacksburg will continue to keep us and our descendants in touch with a vibrant and essential past.
