Well, I haven’t ever actually shopped at a Wegmans grocery but every time I hear mention of the store coming to Charlottesville it seems to be with great enthusiasm. So I decided to have a look at the location of the near-future grocery mecca from the air.
This aerial photo of 5th Street near Interstate 64 shows a large wooded area across from the Food Lion. A few locals might remember that this was the site of the 19th Century home of CSA Captain Eugene Davis.
