Places I've hung out in, sometimes briefly.

Dickenson County VA

If possible, I always read these signs.  This one got me because I was intrigued that the writer described W.J. Dickenson (who otherwise remains shadowy on the net) as a “prominent public man”.  He actually served as a delegate to the Virginia General Assembly in terms from 1854 to 1882.  He sponsored the bill to establish Dickenson as Virginia’s 100th county and to name it (blush) in honor of himself.
