Bringing You Thoughts, Happenings, and Events from The Collins House Inn in Marion, VA
If you are a new visitor to our blog and/or website, you may still be wondering where in the world is Marion, Virginia? Marion is a nice, peaceful little town nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains of Southwest Virginia (2009 population 6,048) — and is located just off I-81 between Abingdon and Wytheville. For those of you who may be NASCAR folks and more familiar with Bristol TN/VA . . . we’re about 40 miles north of there.
We’ve been part of this community since May of 2013. Marion has experienced its share of ups and downs, economically speaking, and has many of the characteristics of any other small town (i.e., seemingly just about everyone knowing everyone else AND everything they do), yet we’ve been pleasantly surprised at the diversity of its population.
Marion has a good many things to offer for a small town — and we hope the information we share with you will encourage you to come for a visit to witness the beauty, serenity, and pleasures for yourself.
