  • Blacksburg Social and Historic Landmark. Take the Tour!😎
  • Home place of Alexander Black, Founder of Blacksburg. For many years, a very fine Funeral Home, and center of Blacksburg Society - Yes, we do have Old Society, still here! The Draper Road/Preston Avenue is an example of the Old Guard faculty that once led VPI. Take your time to reflect on what Blacksburg must have been like a century ago. The Alexander Black House has been restored to its former Victorian glory, and had been moved one block west to Draper Road. It’s now our “Haunted House”, but in reality, the home is an important Landmark of Blacksburg History. Don’t be in such a rush, so as to take in the sights!😎All contacts must go through my Attorney.
