Nelson County, Virginia
Back in the fall of 2005 just months after launching our charter magazine, Nelson County Life, we did a story on one of the most notable landmarks in Central Virginia not far off of the Blue Ridge Parkway. Montebello Country Store has been around for more than a century! Sadly, we learned about the passing of the store’s matriarch, Mrs. Madeline Grant. Though she retired back in the early 90s, Mrs. Grant was still a fixture at the store and would be seen there often in the following years.
Below, Montebello Camping & Fishing Resort made the announcement of Mrs. Grant’s passing on their Facebook page.
RIP Mrs. Grant, we will miss you, along with thousands of others that got to know you over the decades. Our deepest thoughts and hugs to everyone at the country store.
