Historic Buena Vista, one building at a time

The legendary Paxton House is one of Buena Vista's most revered sites. Built in the early 19th century, the neoclassical property was built by a brigadier general who served during the Civil War. It retains much of its historic charm, and includes an immaculate yard. The historic Buena Vista Hotel, today known as the Southern Seminary Main Building at Southern Virginia University, was constructed in 1890 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Another architectural marvel, the Old Courthouse, is part of a cluster of 38 buildings in the Buena Vista Downtown Historic District.

Riverside beauty and miles of trails

If you've booked a Buena Vista vacation rental and want to experience more than just mountain life, make some time to visit the Maury River. It flows throughout neighboring Rockbridge County and into Buena Vista, where it shimmers gracefully as the sun sets over its rippling waters. The Chessie Nature Trail runs parallel to the water, also coming through Buena Vista. For a more localized option, walk straight to the Buena Vista River Trail along the waters and enjoy the sunrise from one of many forested points along the way.
