Buy this if you would like to know the origin of the names of cities and places in Virginia. A good reference book.

We just bought another copy of this comprehensive little book. It is a good addition to our library of local history, and, it's fascinating to learn about the origins of pre-colonial and colonial places in the Commonwealth of Virginia. Oddly named towns and old houses have been researched and are described in interesting detail. We keep a copy in the car when we go exploring with kids (or without). Virginia's native people and their "...dialects of Algonquin, Sioux and Iroquois" contribute to the rich culture of early Virginia as well as those who came to Jamestown from England.
