Somnolent in the foothills of the Blue Ridge, Bluemont, founded as Snickersville in 1824, was once a tiny resort town for diplomats and the DC smart set, last stop on the W&OD railway, which brought wealthy weekenders out for fresh mountain air. When the train went away in 1939, the town fell into decline, but 80 years later it is thriving again. Today, its wineries, breweries, hiking trails, annual fair and fieldstone and Victorian homes draw discerning tourists and prosperous new residents.
