The building on the left was Anne Wood’s Antiques, which she ran with her sister. They lived at Arrowhead Farm on Rt 29S. I remember
buy 6 sterling spoons for a wedding gift from them in the mid 70’s for $25. After her sister died Anne sold the shop to Dr. Camp and he moved it into the house next door. It had been a donut shop in the 60’s and then was Mr Hank’s Botique.
When it was still a home, a Mr Liavers(sic)had lived there. My mom had said he was the first millionaire to live in Charlottesville.
