Sixteen Squares Historic Walking Tour


Join us for a stroll around Blacksburg's to see and visit its historic landmarks.

Blacksburg was developed because it was situated along one of the East-West routes through the Valley of Virginia. Originating from the "Sixteen Squares" which were the first organized, developed land that made up the town, Blacksburg has grown far beyond its original size. 

Take a self-guided tour or join one of our scheduled tours for brief immersion into Blacksburg's local history!
