Narrative: Richmond, the seat of government, has a beautiful and picturesque situation, at the head of the tide and at the falls of James River and is the largest town in, the state; it is favorably situated for trade and manufactures, and has an extensive commerce. Norfolk on Elizabeth River, 8 miles above its entrance into Hampton Road, has a good harbor, and is the most commercial town in Virginia. The site is low and in some places marshy, and the houses are not remarkable for elegance. At Gosport, near Norfolk, there is a United States navy-yard. Petersburgh, on the Appomatox, at the head of the tide, is the third commercial town, and has considerable trade, in flour, tobacco, and cotton. Lynchburg, on James River, where it passes through a mountain ridge, 118 miles west of Richmond is a flourishing town, and has an extensive trade and considerable manufacture: flour, tobacco, hemp, and, other produce, are transported down the river from this town to Richmond. Fredericksburg, on the Rappahannock, near the head of navigation, has considerable commerce ; and Winchester, to the west of the Shenandoah, is a handsome and flourishing inland- town. Williamsburg, a town now decayed, is famous for having formerly been the capital of Virginia; Yorktown, for the surrender of the British army under Cornwallis; Charlottesville, as the seat of the University of Virginia; Lexington, as the seat of Washington College; Harper's Perry, for the passage of the Potomac through the Blue Ridge, and for a United States armory; and the flourishing town of Wheeling, for its situation at the point, where the Cumberland Road reaches the Ohio. Mount Vernon, a pleasant eminence on the Potomac, nine miles below Alexandria, is famous for having been the residence of Washington and Monticello, near Charlottesville, for having been the seat of Jefferson. This is one of the city's most important landmarks. The building was designed by Robert Mills as a memorial and upon the site of the old Richmond Theatre, destroyed by fire in 1811.
