Oversized softcover. Cheriton is a small town of about 500 people on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. "One of the advantages of growing old is the privilege of being allowed to sit around the ‘Cracker Barrel’ and exchange stories with friends. Sometimes you gain a story in the conversation, other times you are able to give a story to someone. In either instance, this is a pleasant way to pass the time of day. It is said that History is not what actually happens, but what is reported as happened. So this is the History of Cheriton as told around the ‘Cracker Barrel’. Gathering around the ‘Cracker Barrel’ is a past time that has been going on in communities since the found of our Country. Cheriton is no different. It is here that ideas are exchanged and stories told, political candidates get their toughest reviews at these gatherings, some of the best farming is done here, the biggest fish are caught here, and most of all, remembrances of days gone by are exchanged. Most of the stories and History of Cheriton and the surrounding countryside have been gathered just sitting and chatting with Cheriton folks. Facts and dates of the Town have been verified from court records. I hop that as it is read, good memories will be returned to you." Illustrated. 54 pages + illustrations.
