Wytheville in Wythe County… pronounced WITH-ville in YTH
County… my trivia du jour. Anyway I had to stay here another day to find
that out. Actually- it's Memorial Day

According to the guide book, if Daniel Boone had had his way, this place would have been called Wolf Hills. (Our camera settings were messed up which made everything blue.)
