BEHIND THE SCENES
We are fortunate to have so many unique historic destinations in Central Virginia. Some are very well known—others… well, you may drive right by them and not even realize it!
In early May, Lynchburg Living Editor Shelley Basinger and Photographer Ashlee Glen got a chance to go inside Mead’s Tavern, which was built in 1763. The unassuming white house located right off 460 is being restored after Liberty University purchased it a few years ago.
Archaeologist Randy Lichtenberger led a tour of the home, which included the basement (watch your head!). Then, archaeologist Keith Adams showed a few artifacts they have uncovered so far in their excavations.
Learn more about the history and discoveries at Mead’s Tavern in our This City department on pages 41-46.
It was a hard day’s work for Lynchburg Living Art Director Chris Meligonis—but the backdrop was easy on the eyes.
In early June, he helped style a photo shoot for this issue’s Taste feature at a co-worker’s beach house. (VistaGraphics is based in Virginia Beach.) COVA Magazine Editor Angela Blue and Photographer David Uhrin were also a part of the effort. The best part of this photo shoot was when it came time to “clean up”—the team spent the rest of the afternoon enjoying the food in the beach breeze.
