Stories of an Abandoned Virginia

May 10, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 5:30 pm

Stories from an Abandoned Virginia

This program is brought to you by Bear Chase Brewing Company and John Plashal Photo. Come spend your Friday evening enjoying this highly visual presentation of Virginia’s “abandoned afterworld”. Photographer, adventurer and public speaker, John Plashal, has not only spent many years identifying and photographing beautifully decaying houses, churches, schools, hospitals and other structures throughout rural Virginia, but has assimilated into their respective communities to learn about their accompanying backstories. The result is “Stories of an Abandoned Virginia”, a unique presentation full of powerful imagery and emotional stories revolving around local landmarks that have been “frozen in time” and the accompanying Virginians that once occupied them, delivered from the beautiful evening setting below the picturesque Bear Chase Brewing Company.
