Two African American baseball greats born in the Piedmont
Welcome to the Piedmont Virginian
Just west of Northern Virginia, in the foothills of the Blue Ridge, lies the Piedmont: a beautiful oasis with mountain views, charming small towns steeped in a rich history, and quiet rural areas where traffic jams usually involve livestock or tractors.
The Piedmont’s storied past and vast beauty are celebrated by the artists, restaurants, winemakers, and others that occupy this amazing region—a place appreciated and revered by those who live here and those who visit.
The Piedmont Virginian Magazine, a richly produced quarterly journal of information and appreciation of this area’s nature, place, people, and ways of life, is a window into this world.
We strive to give voice to this special—even magical—place in the hopes that it remains so.
Please join us on this journey.
