Did You Know There Is A Valentines, Va?

A few hours south of here, past Norfolk, there's a town in Brunswick County, Va called Valentines in honor of the town's first postmaster. Hardly anyone lives there anymore, but the mail picks up around this time of year because they still carry on the tradition of postmarking letters with a special heart-shaped stamp. Throughout the year the post office serves about three hundred and sixty people, but during the Valentines rush they get about twenty thousand extra letters sent to them just so they can be hand-cancelled with the heart stamp. We found a few houses for sale in Valentines, including this waterfront 3 bed, 3.5 bath for 474,900.
