Lexington, VA is a small town in southwestern Virginia. It basically survives because of it's historical background and the two schools there : Washington and Lee University
and Virinia Military Institute
is a small, prestegious liberal arts school that boasts a remarkably homegenous student body which is overwhelmingly white, middle to upper class, polo-short-popped-collar wearing preps
. Stores such as Pumpkinseeds and Alvin-Dennis survive BECAUSE the W&L students are there to buy their designer clothes.
is home to the poor "veemies" who have horrible rules and curfews to live by and can only watch in longing as hundreds of w&l students skip between cocktail and frat
parties, and comme home shwaysted
at any hour of the day/night.
"Townies" are everyone else. They are often wierd.
