I just changed the name of the Blog, Weather Station, and Webcam from "Old Rockfish Post Office" to "Rockfish Depot". I thought it fit the Webcam view and is a term that ole timers around here use for this area.

If you tell someone "Rockfish" they think you live between Nellysford and Afton (Rockfish Valley)... When you say "Rockfish Depot" they either know it or don't. Also the name is shorter so as to fit in stickers and such.

Rockfish was known as Rockfish Depot years ago. Old letters have Rockfish Depot as the place of origin. Rockfish used to have a depot when the spur line to Schuyler was running to service the Soapstone Mill...

When I first moved here (2000), some called the Post Office "Rockfish Depot". We can still call it the "Old Rockfish Post Office", LOL!

Now I am trying to get the marker for Rockfish, Va to be near the actual place of Rockfish. Somehow, it is located closer to Lovingston and Shipman. When I search for weather in Rockfish, it shows that another station in Lovingston is closer... I had Google change the location of their marker, but it doesn't seem to be updating in WunderMap...
