Summary
Describes the importance of roads and their affect on the architecture of farms and homes throughout the Shenandoah Valley in the 18th and 19th centuries. Discusses how improved roads allowed rural Virginians to transport their produce to centralized markets, such as Winchester, Virginia. Improved markets caused a transition from a barter-based system to a capitalist market economy. Describes how that transition affected archictecture, land use, and community life in the Shenandoah Valley; particularly in the Winchester and Frederick County regions
