June 2019 issue

JUN2019

In the June issue of Virginia Living, we visit Robert E. Lee’s boyhood home in Arlington, an estate that has seen its share of dignitaries during its 225-year history, from George Washington to Carl Sandburg. We also had a look behind the scenes at the Academy of Music Theatre in Lynchburg, a regional entertainment hub for decades that was closed and all but abandoned for 60 years until, through the efforts of a passionate community coalition, it underwent complete renovation, allowing it to once again play a vital role in the region’s art scene, and we meet retired pilot Bill Jenkins of Montross who uses hand tools, wood, and glue to build antique-style chairs. In our new department Drink, which shares the same name of our annual special issue, we share news from the state’s beverage industry, whether you’re a fan of beer, wine, cider, mead, or spirits, look for updates from your favorite makers on page, plus we offer recipes for frozen cocktail pops to help you keep cool during the summer. And in our annual special section, In the Market, we offer advice for readers looking to buy or sell a home this spring. We talked to Realtors, explored paint options, and discussed landscaping to bring you the best ideas for selling your house quickly and finding a new one as painlessly as possible.
