Victoria
Then and Now

The Centennial Edition
1909 - 2009



    

Victoria - Then and Now, The Centennial Edition is an effort to capture the history of a small Southside Virginia town that was quite literally put on the map by the coming of the Virginian Railway.
The town has had its good times and bad, but through it all, the townspeople have been resilient.


    

Victoria Christian Church 1911 - 2011
Another wonderful one-time publication celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the Victoria Christian Church.

Anne says, "We do have a few left. It's $15 plus $4.95 to mail. Send check to VCC to me: 689 Fowlkes Road, Victoria, VA 23974. THANKS!"
