Our December 2007 issue marks Virginia Living’s fifth anniversary, and it does so in high style. On the cover, Big Apple socialite and Richmonder Tinsley Mortimer channels Millicent Rogers. Inside, personalities from Jerry Falwell to Rita Mae Brown to Douglas MacArthur’s mother show what makes our state extraordinary. In between, learn about C.F. Sauer’s new face and Virginia Tech’s Highty-Tighties’ new life. Plus, a holiday feast, decorating with magnolia, bird watching, arts, Roanoke eateries, a Christmas house and much more.

It took four years and a few bidding wars with luminaries like Arnold Schwarzenegger and Rod Stewart to get Dover Hall furnished. The result is an astounding collection of period art and antiques. more
