The Back of the Dragon - VA 16

The Back of the Dragon - VA 16

Marion to Tazwell - The Back of the Dragon, a 29 mile long section of VA 16 runs north / south between the towns of Marion and Tazwell, Virginia. Climbing up and down the mountain ridges along the way it holds both sweeping curves in the valleys and tight and twisty sections carving through the rocky cuts in the high parts. There is little along the way, a few homes and farms. Most of it is wooded passing through Hungry Mother State Park at the south end. It is a useful road, one of the nicest ways to traverse this area, easy to work into your travel plans. Over the years it has been popularized and marketed as a motorcycle destination ride. The hub of this motorcycle related activity is at the north end in Tazwell where the Back of the Dragon Visitor Center opened a new facility in 2020. Several good rides connect to it and there is some great riding in the surrounding area.

Grimshawes Post Office

Grimshawes Post Office

The tiny 5-foot by 6-foot Grimshawes Post Office was in service from 1878 until 1953. It was originally the Whiteside Cove Post Office, though it came to be known as the Grimshawes Post Office around 1909 as all of its postmasters were named Grimshawe. It closed in 1953 and the small building was dismantled and moved to the top of Whiteside Mountain where it served as a ticket office. Ultimately it fell into disrepair. In the 1970's, a local group salvaged the building and restored it here. Once reputed as the smallest Post Office in the USA, it was popularized with postcards, though it claim to fame has been usurped by an even smaller Post Office located in Ochopee, Florida.
