10 Then And Now Photos In Virginia That Show Just How Much It Has Changed…Or Not

Virginia has one of the longest and richest histories of any state in the nation. Our history is tangible today through homes, markers and museums in nearly every town and city in the state. But to see a comparison of history through the lens of historic photographs next to modern day imagery lends a completely new perspective to past events, people and places. The following 10 images show well-known places around Virginia with a look back at what these places were in the past.

It’s always fascinating to see which places in the state have changed dramtically, and why, as well as those that have stayed the same. Where are some of your favorite historic places in the state? Do you think they have changed much over the years? We would love to hear your contributions in the comments below!
