No New Posts Green Ribbon House



This building is not only green in colour, but environmentally friendly as well! However, students don't see much of this, rather choosing to enjoy the small shaded porch in front of the building or the wonderful benefit of it being the closest house to the barns.

No New Posts Blue Ridge Livery



Located in the centre of town, this shopping centre is the place to be. In the summer, cute little tables with umbrellas can be found, ready to welcome anyone that's looking to sit and read for a spell, or even just enjoy a coffee while people-watching. The stores that are located in this area are all family-owned, and the half-circle that they shape is a fun walk for anyone looking to get in a bit of exercise.
