1st Post - VA Renaissance Fair

Long time reader - first time poster!

Back in the 90s, the Virginia Renaissance Fair was held in Fredericksburg. It was too close to swamp land and a couple bad summers (too much rain and blistering heat) meant the place went belly up in just a few years. They moved it to a nicer location, but in doing so they simply abandoned their little village.
