Although I've lived in New York City since the 1960s, I grew up in Virginia so naturally I'm interested in what the New Deal did there, too.

Then in mid-2020 Connie started to photograph sites in Rockingham County, beginning with Harrisonburg. I also made some contributions of my own from the public record and a certain book (and then some other ones). Here's what we have so far:
