Davenport VA Post Office

We’re in Buchanan County and, once again, in a community that was named after the first postmaster.  According to R.M. Hanson’s “Virginia Placenames, Derivations, Historic Uses” (1969, McClure Printing Co.), a William Davenport was appointed postmaster here around 1885.  This is on Hwy 80, the Helen Henderson Highway.  She was a politician, was Ms. Henderson.
