Brandy Station, Waiting for Spring

Brandy Station tree

Brandy Station Gazebo On a recent trip by Brandy Station, I had the chance to stop for a few minutes and walk the new interpretive trail that caps Fleetwood Hill. While the former McMansion has been razed, a small gazebo still stands on the hillside. A large tree standing atop the hill waited for the arrival of spring—which is now finally settling across the Virginia countryside.

One Response to Brandy Station, Waiting for Spring

  1. I paid my first visit to Brandy Station a week ago today. The signs are limited but adequate. I, for one, like to see a battlefield that’s been left alone, not covered with monuments and visitor centers. Of course, you need to bring your own maps with you to really understand what happened and where. Nice place to visit in the spring.
