Lovingston
Nelson County, Virginia

Go back 210 years. Yes, 210 years and you will find a unique inscription written over the balcony that the jury would see. In 1807 when the courthouse was built “Virtus – Keep God’s Commandments – Veritas” was inscribed on a wood beam there. The find was discovered as workers were doing renovation on the courtroom there.
