Does American history get your blood pumping? Do you love being surrounded by historically significant sites and antiquated beauty? If you answered “yes” to any of those questions, then Virginia is the state for you. Are you not sure what Virginia has to offer, or why you would need a commercial steel building there? Let the experts at Kentucky Steel Buildings, Panel & Supply in Winchester, Kentucky tell you a little about “the Old Dominion” and about the benefits of commercial steel buildings as well.
Out of every state in the country, Virginia has the longest history. Jamestown was, in fact the first permanent English settlement west of Africa, and marked its 400 year anniversary in 2007. The colony earned its named of “Virginia” as it was settled by Walter Raleigh at the behest of Queen Elizabeth I, also known as the “virgin queen,” as she never married. Virginia was instrumental in the Revolutionary War. It declared itself independent of Britain slightly before the colonies as a whole, and the Virginia Declaration of Rights served as an inspiration for Thomas Jefferson when he penned the Declaration of Independence. Since then, Virginia has played a key role in American history, even earning the monikers of “Mother of Presidents,” as the state has produced more presidents than any other, and “Mother of States,” as the original Virginia colony has since been broken up into several other states, including Kentucky.
While Virginia has certainly grown and changed since it was founded over 400 years ago, many of its attractions are still centered on its history. Many historical buildings are open to tourists, including the homes of Robert E. Lee, George Washington, and Thomas Jefferson. If you are looking to further your education, or you have children looking to do the same, Virginia has some of the top-ranked universities in the country, including the University of Virginia, which was ranked by U.S. News & World Report as the second best public college in the nation. If you’d rather be outside than studying or touring a museum, Virginia has an incredibly varied geographical makeup, meaning that you can climb mountains, tour local wineries in valleys, and visit the beaches of Virginia’s coastline all in one convenient state.
