VA. Mountaineer
Buchanan County's Family Newspaper Since 1922

It's been 75 years since The Virginia Mountaineer published the first edition of what was billed then -- and is still billed now -- as "Buchanan County's Family Newspaper." What started out then as a small four-page weekly newspaper to keep Buchanan County residents aware of the local goings on of the community and as a vehicle for the publication of various legal notices, has grown into an average 24-page weekly newspaper which in 75 years has chronicled the ups, the downs and the in betweens of Buchanan County and her residents.

The Appalachian School of Law is located in the southwest Virginia town of Grundy. This scenic mountain town, the home of award-winning novelist Lee Smith, offers a number of cultural and recreational opportunities, without the high cost of living associated with an urban setting.
