I have been curious for a while about where you live in southwest Virginia, so I was excited to see this post and I'm assuming this is St. Paul in Wise County? My maternal grandmother was from St. Paul and my grandparents lived in Coeburn until their deaths, so I know that area well. It has always been an area that people strive to escape from, so it is encouraging to see someone like yourself injecting fresh energy into the area!
