What started as a collection of taverns and rest stops along the Great Wilderness Road has grown into the New River Valley’s retail hub, pairing brand-name shopping and dining with locally-owned eateries and boutiques. Christiansburg is a place of past and present, with historic neighborhoods and innovative business and development existing side by side.
From the days of Daniel Boone, Davy Crockett and eventually Booker T. Washington to the post World War era that saw the opening of the Starlite Drive-In, Christiansburg has continued to grow while maintaining its small-town vibe.
