I'm sure there has been a lot of grinding taken place there!!!

Barb Batterton is this the one near the river down past the turn for your road?

About time!

I am originally from Berryville and graduate of Clarke County High School. Glad to hear so much of this county is protected historical.

Do they still grind there?

Shopped here when we moved to CC in '85.

I do remember that.

Use to shop there when I moved here in ‘86. Memories

I almost got a ticket one night there . Town police let me go but ragged on me pretty bad . Man I loved to smell that eight o'clock coffee being ground.

WOW How time ⏰ goes by ❤

Loved their coffee...

My aunt worked there when it first opened

It was a super fresh when I was growing up.

I loved that little store.

Work their as a meat cutter

That’s a beautiful picture. I love bluebells

We have bluebells in North Dakota.

Stop spraying poison

What exactly does vegetation management entail? Are they hydroseeding, spraying herbicide, mowing? Would like to know if I need to cover some of my plants to protect from drift etc.

So when did the word "mowing" become politically incorrect?

Easily 100 or more friends filled Long Branch Historic House & Farm on Friday night to celebrate its farm manager, Joe Lewis, who has worked at the 400-acre estate for 30 years – and has no plans to retire! Among the guests were three friends who welcomed Lewis in 1989: Colette Poisson (left) was the estate’s curator, Joe Hickey was the farm manager who hired Lewis, and Jodie Popio (right) was the executive director. #ClarkeCountyVirginia ...

Joanne Maisano shared this 2018 photo of Pete and Liz, who would have celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary this spring...

Yes,Pete will be missed. He was a one of a kind for sure. He was Mr.Clarke County for sure. He loved this part of the country and always was very expressive!! Prayers and love to family.

Liz is as beautiful and elegant every day as she is in this photo; Only the dress is different. The first time I met her, I knew Pete couldn’t be all bad and have such a wife. 😆 (Yes, I told him so. He agreed.) I will miss his sense of humor. Thanks for sharing this!

Sure will miss his pranks and stopping by to visit us at the Office.

Beautiful

Sweet picture! Pete will be missed. My condolences to his family.

Just yesterday I was thinking I would like to see their wedding photo. Thanks!

Didn’t know he ever married. RIP Pete

Beautiful!

Beautiful picture. He will be so missed.

A wonderful couple.

❤️🌹🌹🙏🏻

Thanks for sharing this!

BPD Officers put in my first two child safety seats with us, showing us how to do it correctly, so we could move them to different cars with confidence. It was great peace of mind! And they were very happy to help - they told me it was what Berryville residents paid them to do, watching out for the safety of our kids. ❤️🚓❤️

Many in Clarke County are mourning A.R. “Pete” Dunning Jr., who died at his home on March 21, 2019. He was 79. Mr. Dunning served 32 years as the White Post District representative on the Clarke County Board of Supervisors and was chairman from 1996 through 2001. “Pete Dunning was one of a kind, and he dedicated his life to the betterment of Clarke County and his fellow citizens,” said Board of Supervisors Chairman David Weiss. “He will be missed by us all.” During his decades as a Supervisor, Mr. Dunning also served on the Clarke County Planning Commission, Clarke County Sanitary Authority, Berryville Area Development Authority, CFFW Regional Jail Board, Finance Committee, Economic Development Advisory Committee, River Use Committee, and as liaison to the Clarke County School Board.

Oh my I've just heard. So very sorry to hear this news. He will be sorely missed. He was a giant in every way. Prayer to the family.

Good Ol Pete, truly one of a kind!!!!!!!!! He shall be missed. Deepest sympathy to Liz and the family.

Sending heartfelt sympathy to Liz and all the family. My father, Richard Pyne, worked for both Dunning's, old and young. Pete was treated like Dad's own son. If he needed correcting when he was young, working with Dad on the farm, he was dealt the same as my brothers. Dad and Pete had a mutual respect and love for each other. May you Rest In Peace, Pete.

What a loss to the community. Pete has been part of my life since I can remember. Our parents were close friends too in that lovely Clarke County way of multi-generation friendships. I am grateful that when I returned home to spend more time in the county, I got to reconnect with Pete in a whole new way. I will miss him. My heart goes out to all the Dunning family. Millwood with never be the same without Pete and Tommy.

What very very sad news! He was quite the character. A big bark with a huge heart. In my eyes he was Mr Clarke County. I will cherish the memories I have of Growing up in his house!! Hugs and love to all of the Dunning family!

We are so sad to hear this news. Sympathy and much love to dear Molly and Liz and all the family. ♥️♥️

So saddened to read of Pete's passing. Pete was always a character when talking to him We did a few Real Estate deals together over the last 30 years together as Real Estate Agents in the area. He was always a fine gentleman who was a pleasure to work with. You will be missed in our Clarke County Community!! Thank you for all your time spent improving our great County of Clarke!! Prayers to the family during this difficult time of sorrow.

What an amazing public servant. Sincerest condolences to his loved ones and friends.

RIP, Pete. Did we ever have some amazing times. Loved being your neighbor and part of the endless shenanigans! Prayers and condolences to the whole family. 😘❤️

Will miss our neighbor. Pete loved his family, his church and Clarke County. RIP Pete. Our deepest sympathy and prayers. Dot and Jim

Condolences to the Dunning family.

My sincere condolences to the Dunning family. Pete was, indeed, a "corker" as my mom would say. He will be missed.

Pete, RIP! Prayers, Best Wishes, and Condolences to his Wife and Family. 🙏

So sorry to hear this news, my thoughts and prayers to Liz and the Dunning family

Praying for the Dunning family 🙏

Could someone explain why it is going to take 8-9 months to put replace this little bridge? Thanks.

I’ll be glad when it’s finished. I hate having to detour

Just went over that bridge for the first time less than 2 weeks ago!

The male driver of the pickup truck died at the scene. His remains were transported to the Office of the Medical Examiner in Manassas for examination and autopsy.

As this area dries out – after record-setting rainfall in 2018 – new topsoil will added to complete the project. #ClarkeCountyVirginia ... See MoreSee Less

Fantastic! I was wondering if that was going to be addressed ever.

They were all over town this week! Grateful for the work this little crew gets done!

These guys always do a great job for our town.

Thanks for working on park area ....yay!! Richie Blick I would be happy to regrade my property if there was someplace for the water to travel/collect

Yes! They should re-grade the park when the new playground is installed. We all need to regrade our properties.
