South Boston, Virginia

Commemorating the Demise of the Grist Mill: The Hupps ran the mill outside of South Boston, and they made one of the bedstones part of their final resting place. Through the 'eye' of the stone, they may be able to see friends and family who come to visit.  The mill is gone (lost to fire in 1942), but a shopping center keeps the name alive on the landscape of Southside Virginia. Oak Ridge Cemetery. [2012]
