Lexington, the seat for Rockbridge County, is situated in the beautiful Shenandoah Valley within minutes of the Blue Ridge Mountains
Main Street is part of Route 11--the Valley Pike/Great Road--and the architecture downtown looks much as it did in the 19th century. Lexington is home to Washington and Lee University and Virginia Military Institute. It is also the final resting place for Thomas Stonewall Jackson and Robert E. Lee, as well as their horses. Within a few blocks, one visits the Stonewall Jackson House, Lee Chapel Museum, the VMI Museum, and the George C. Marshall Library Museum.
