CROZET:

Trails All that pizza is easy to work off on the lovely, four-mile, Crozet Connector Trail system that links many of the city’s neighborhoods. “The trail links from Claudius Crozet Park, but it connects to the backsides of the Glenbrook, Foothill Crossing, Westlake Hills, West Hall, and Western Ridge neighborhoods,” Cromer says. “It loops around, so if you don’t want your kid to ride their bike on the street, they can take the trail.” Other connecting points are Lickinghole Basin (a popular spot for birding), Beaver Creek Park (219 acres with a 104-acre fishing and boating lake), and Old Trail Village. At the head of each trail is a paved parking lot. A largely volunteer group, the Crozet Trails Crew (CTC), established the trails and carefully maintains them. Special events including guided hikes and an annual 5K run raise funds and awareness.

WELCOME TO

“not-for-the-timid” sauced creations not just great, but “the best in the world.” Originally opened by Bob and Karen Crum in 1977, and now run by their daughter Colleen and her husband Mike, Crozet Pizza is a downtown institution. And you no longer have to order days in advance.

Doing the Tunnel

BY KEN WILSON

Gaze and Read very welcoming. It kind of grounds the heart of Crozet right there.” A former track and field star and UVA coach, now with Cromer Team Realty, Cromer and her husband moved to Crozet seven years ago, looking for more space for their young family. They found a place to grow, and a place to relax a little. “It has just a notch slower pace of life,” Cromer says now. “When you have a growing family and it’s chaotic and crazy all the time, it’s nice to be able to soak in that—to have the recreation and the mountain views and be able to jump over to the orchard or the vineyard for an hour for a picnic. Everything is a bit slower; that was most welcome.”

Pizza You’ll want to slow down, the better to savor, when you’re downtown having a bite at Crozet Pizza. A city with an estimated population of only 7,159 in 2019

is an unlikely place to find world-class pizza. But if anyone should know, it’s the globetrotters at National Geographic, who called Crozet Pizza’s three-day-dough

rive 12 miles west of Charlottesville or 21 miles east of Staunton and you’ll find one happy and friendly community. Want proof? Just drive downtown and look up. While your typical young adult is more likely to leave town than to tout it, twenty-one-year-old Virginia Tech architecture student Charlie Crotteau and his former Western Albemarle High School classmate Emmy Thacker teamed up to give their own hometown a sevenfoot-tall sign of affection. “Welcome to Crozet” it says. Crotteau designed the cheerfully colored mural, with it fruits and flowers and expansive Blue Ridge Mountain view; Thacker and a couple of assistants stenciled and painted it onto a blank wall. “I luuuv that mural,” says Dawn Cromer with enthusiasm that leaves no room for doubt. “It’s beautiful and it’s

If You Look, You’ll Stay

Another cool reminder of local history is the newly re-opened Claudius Crozet Blue Ridge Tunnel, now repurposed for new generations as a walking and biking trail. Built to be a railroad tunnel, it was designed by Claudius Crozet, a Frenchborn civil engineer and West Point instructor, who resided in the town (then called Wayland’s Crossing) during its construction between 1850 and 1858. “It’s a fabulous resource,” says another lifelong area resident, REALTOR® Ross Stevens of Stevens Company. “They’ve really done a nice job converting it into a public trail through the mountain. From Crozet it goes through Afton Mountain on the east slope into the Waynesboro side in Nelson County.”

Fruit Picking Who wants peaches? Who doesn’t? Crozet’s Chiles Peach Orchard and Farm Market dates back to 1912, when the Chiles family planted its first trees and began shipping the crop ‘round the country for commercial production. In 1974 a bad freeze left them so little fruit that the usual picking and packing routine wasn’t worth its while. They coped. They ran an ad in the newspaper, set up a card table, scales and a cigar box, hoped for the best—and sold out. Local pickers have been welcomed ever since. Today April through November you can find peaches, strawberries, sweet cherries, pumpkins and seventeen varieties of apples, and numerous enticing fruit products. Kids and grown-ups love the peach frozen yogurt and milkshakes sold in season. Another old Crozet family, the Henleys, founded its orchard back in 1932 when Joseph T. Henley, Sr., the Commonwealth of Virginia’s first fruit inspector, purchased five acres of land and planted apple trees. As Henley expanded his property, he added nectarine and peach trees, and the orchard has been in family hands for four generations now. Most of its fruit is for sale from mid-June till the end of October. Its late-season apples, kept in

cold storage, are sold throughout the winter until April.

Parks and Rec For family outings and play dates right in town there is twenty-two-acre Claudius Crozet Park, with baseball and soccer fields, tennis courts, walking trails, a pool open year-round, and a dog park.

A 47,000 square foot aquatic and fitness center is coming. Crozet’s Piedmont Family YMCA makes its home in the park, as do the Peachtree Baseball program and the award winning, 300-or-so member Gators Swim Team. During the park’s annual Arts and Crafts Festival each fall over 120 jury-selected fine art and craft exhibitors sell their work.

Mint Springs Valley Park stretches across 520 acres, including two acres of sandy beach and eight of water, 1.8 miles of trails, plus playgrounds and grill-equipped picnic shelters. U.S. Coast Guard-approved boats with electric motors are welcome on the lake, which is stocked with largemouth bass, sunfish and channel catfish.

Sipping and Swirling For beer lovers, one of the best and most well-known of the Commonwealth’s 290 craft breweries is here too. Starr Hill Brewery and Tap Room, operating in the former Morton Frozen Foods plant, shares its building with the entertainment marketing company Musictoday, founded by Dave Matthews Band manager Coran Capshaw. Just a few minutes out of town is King Family Vineyards, a gorgeous spot for picnics and weddings, or just lazy afternoons. Wine was an afterthought when David and Ellen King arrived here from Houston, Texas in 1995. As an avid polo player since 1980, David wanted a farm with twelve flat acres for a polo field. Today their property is a destination spot for polo players and oenophiles alike.

New construction goes from the mid$500,000s and up. So look around. For homebuyers with a $300,000 to $400,000 budget, “Highlands is a great neighborhood to start off in,” Cromer says. “A majority of the homes there are duplexes; they’re attached, yet they feel like they have their own yards.”

For higher end purchasers, Cromer recommends Western Ridge: “I’ve always adored that neighborhood. It’s fabulous because they turned the old farmhouse into a clubhouse with a recreation area including a pool. That adds a lot of value to the neighborhood. The Crozet Trails are right off of that neighborhood as well.” Retirees—but not only retirees—love

Hilly, 115-acre Beaver Creek Reservoir Park provides great views of the sun setting over the Blue Ridge Mountains. Its 104-acre lake draws kayakers, canoers and paddle boarders.

“There is no compelling reason to leave Crozet unless your job requires it,” says Jim Duncan of Nest Realty, a “Crozetian” for 19 years. The town may not be as small as it was back then,” he says, but “it’s still a great place to live. The mountains haven’t changed.” And the restaurants, coffee shops, cool places to shop, and other area attractions have multiplied. “We have more amenities that don’t require us to go to Charlottesville or over the mountain to Waynesboro.” “Crozet has grown a lot in the last 15 years and is probably going to double in size in the next 15 or 20. But we’re still going to be close to the mountains and the Shenandoah National Park and Blue Ridge Parkway.” What’s more, Duncan says, “There is a great sense of community in Crozet; but there [are] also many micro-communities within the broader Crozet community. I have clients who are in knitting clubs and book clubs and soccer and bicycling and running clubs.” It’s a dynamic place, Crozet. “Crozet Sports is raising money for more fields and recreation facilities,” Cromer notes. “There is so much talent in the kids out here.” So much talent—and so many contented people.
