A highway marker now pays tribute to a famous painter that spent some time living in Augusta County. It was dedicated Thursday in Verona.
Anna Mary Robertson Moses, better known as Grandma Moses, lived with her family in Verona in the late 1800s. One of her homes, Mount Airy, still stands near the site of the marker.
Augusta County historian Nancy Sorrells says Moses was quite the entrepreneur.
"They milked cows and sold the milk in Staunton and she made potato chips and sold them on the streets in Staunton,” said Sorrells.
Her time in the valley inspired at least 38 of her 1,600 paintings.
Thursday's dedication was sponsored by Augusta County and the Augusta County Historical Society.
