Our second walking tour of the 2016 Staunton’s Neighborhood Brown Bag Series looks at the arrangement of streets and buildings of the Tannehill / Wheat neighborhood.  Located to the west of Bridge Street, between the railroad tracks to the north and Maple Street to the south, Tannehill / Wheat includes several variations on both residential and commercial architectural styles.  Two major streams, local topography, and the railroad tracks placed along an east/west axis have heavily influenced the arrangement and character of the neighborhood.  We look forward to continuing our explorations of Staunton’s neighborhoods in Tannehill / Wheat; members of the neighborhood will join us to share their stories of the culture, life, and history of the area.
