Welcome to The Brothers Trout, A Community Blog & Gathering Place
October 18, 2016
Welcome y'all! Pull-on-up a chair and let me tell you a story...
There is a special place in our heart for Troutville, Virginia: the mountains she is nestled between, her care for Appalachian Trail Hikers, the love demonstrated by her townspeople, and the friendship she has with her sweet neighboring communities.
You know those times in your life when your heart is so full of affection and appreciation for something you think ... "this might just explode!" or "If I don't tell someone, I'm gonna burst!" Our sentiments exactly. But, instead of bursting - we're going to share with and educate you on that which stirs our affections... Troutville... in hopes that it might do the same for you.
Troutville, Virginia is a community built on brotherhood. What does that even mean? Subscribe yourself to this site and I promise you'll find out.
In the weeks, months and years to come, you will find this site filled with writings inspired by the Troutville, Virginia communities of Amsterdam, Brughs Mill, Daleville, Nace, and Troutville herself. History. Heritage. Memoirs. Sentiments. Things perhaps long forgotten. We'll look to the past, from time-to-time highlight the present, and maybe even venture as far as to talk about the future. We live in an exciting time within Botetourt County, but to forget our past would be a tragic disservice to both our forefathers and future generations. Join us in our quest to preserve and make available to our community, children, and the strangers passing through - the stories which make our Troutville, so very special and so very dear.
Come join us for story time. Share your email with us and we'll make sure we have room for you.
