Staunton's Newtown: Portrait of a Historic District
This 330-page softcover volume is a collaborative work by Dr. Katharine L. Brown and her students in historic preservation at Mary Baldwin College.
Illustrated with more than 250 photographs, maps, and drawings, this book tells the story of the people who made Newtown from its addition to Staunton in 1787 to its recent rediscovery and revival, and the houses, churches, and schools that they built. With seven churches and seven schools featured, the institutional history of the district alone is impressive. Staunton's prominent architectural firm, T.J. Collins & Son, designed many Newtown buildings and structures, including the monuments of Thornrose Cemetery.
