In the wake of the Civil War, the newspaper that would become The News & Advance printed its first edition Jan. 15, 1866, marking the beginning of 150 years of covering the triumphs and tragedies, the celebrations and heartbreaks of Central Virginia.
The News & Advance is celebrating this milestone with two keepsake glossy magazines focused on the past 150 years of the Hill City’s history as culled from our archives. This gallery contains just a few of the photographs we simply couldn't fit in the second magazine, available Saturday, June 18.
Each magazine is being distributed in home-delivered copies at a price of $2. The magazine also is sold separately for $3.95 at the front counter of The News & Advance at 101 Wyndale Drive, starting June 20; the first edition already is available.To have the Discover magazine delivered to your doorstep, calling (434) 385-5440.
