Blacksburg VA vs. Christiansburg VA

There are no coincidences in life, but it's interesting that from the map we see that Blacksburg VA is north of Christiansburg VA.

Here's some more food for thought: a quick look at Blacksburg VA's website reveals NO history and a distincly cold corporate "feel".

Christiansburg's website on the other hand seems to reveal a very warm family-oriented city with a very rich history:

Christiansburgh*, named for William Christian, is located on a plateau deep in the heart of the Alleghenies. Christian, described by Lula Givens in her book Christiansburg, Montgomery County, Virginia, in the Heart of the Alleghenies, was an important person in the area when it was still Fincastle County. Governor Dunmore had appointed him one of the first justices of that county and named him chairman of the Committee of Safety to protect the settlers. He was born on Christian's Creek near Staunton, Virginia in 1742. William studied law with Patrick Henry and courted and married Patrick's sister, Ann.
