A big birthday is getting statewide attention. As WDBJ7 told you last month Fincastle Presbyterian Church is celebrating its 250th anniversary. Now that milestone is garnering recognition from the Governor and Virginia Senator Steve Newman. The Fincastle church's history dates back to 1763. Town Council Member Wendy Jones felt that kind of extraordinary history deserved something special. "This church is so steeped in history. British regulars or servicemen in Fincastle during the Revolutionary War, we've got the War of 1812 service members there, Civil War service members and it goes on and on," explains Jones.

Fincastle Presbyterian Church has been raising its voice for years, centuries, in fact. The church is celebrating its 250th anniversary. "It was in 1763 that two Presbyerian meeting houses combined to form the Fincastle congregation," explains Reverend Dr. Iain Maclean, "So that makes it, I think, the oldest continuingly surviving congregation in Botetourt County. " In addition to faith, this congregation is all about history. You would be too if you had a lineage that dated back to 1763.

A private honeymoon getaway, or just a weekend away to sample great wine. Those are just a couple of reasons guests check in at the  Fincastle Vineyard Bed and Breakfast. The 1926 farmhouse offers only two guest rooms, so it's perfect for honeymooners who want to keep to themselves.   The bed and breakfast is also unique in that it has a winery right there on the property, and offers vintage lovers seven lines of wine for their sipping enjoyment.

Better late than never.  That's what folks in the small town of Fincastle in Botetourt County discovered Sunday night when their town's postponed Independence Day fireworks show lighted the sky. The lights came back on at Breckenridge Elementary School last Friday. Not in time for the planned 4th of July show, postponed when the big storm knocked out power here. "On the plus side, we were not hit as bad with the weather issues that plagued other towns.  We never lost power to our wells and we had a backup generator for our sewer plant so we were able to maintain those services," said David Tickner, Fincastle's Town Manager.

Area farmers are bracing for 3 to 5 inches of rain from the remnants of "Lee. "  Some welcome the heavy rains, others have concerns. Apple growers say the rain comes at a good time.  Jennifer Ikenberry of Ikenberry Orchards in Daleville told News 7 "I think as dry as it is right now we can live with the 3 to 5. " Ikenberry says if we had a wet summer flooding would be a problem for the apples. Instead, they had a long hot dry summer.  She believes this week's heavy rains will be beneficial to some varieties like Rome apples.  They will be bigger.  Local wineries are also keeping a close eye on the remnants of "Lee.
