We are at the starting point for The Crooked Road: Virginia’s Heritage Music Trail here in Rocky Mount. Walk to the Harvester Performance Hall for some local bluegrass. Booker T Washington National Monument is just a short drive from The Claiborne House. Confederate General Jubal A Early (General Lee's right-hand man) was from Franklin County Virginia, which is also well known as The Moonshine Capital of the world. Come out to Virginia and walk in the footsteps of history. The Movie "Lawless" was made about our Franklin County VA!

A hearty home-cooked breakfast and great coffee is a tradition at The Claiborne House. The second "B" in bed and breakfast is important.
