Blue Star Memorial

The Blue Star Memorial By-way Marker

“…Speaking of small sanctuaries, we have one at the intersection of Richmond Road and North Boundary on that corner next to the W&M sorority houses. “Visitors Welcome” invites all to enter, wander and linger for a spell. Outside, along that fence, look down for the two markers. The Blue Star Memorial B-Way Marker gives tribute to our armed forces. Another plaque is in memory of John T. Baldwin, Jr. who was a W&M Biology professor.” The Virginia Gazette, August 27, 2008, “More Local Treasures Found.”
