lanked by the Blue Ridge to the east and Massanutten Mountain to the west, Front Royal’s founders strategically situated their community at the forks of the Shenandoah River. Recognized as the Gateway to Shenandoah National Park and the Canoe Capital of Virginia, Front Royal provides an ideal base for exploring the region’s unique outdoor adventures, cultural heritage, and historic past. Once “le front royal” or the “Royal Frontier” between French and British territories, local legend favors a more colorful origin for the town’s unusual name. According to this version, a giant oak tree, the “Royal” tree of England once stood in the public square. Visitors from the military will appreciate the frustrations of the drill sergeant as he attempted to train his
unseasoned recruits for the local militia. At last, thoroughly exasperated by the inability of his troops to follow even the simplest command, he bellowed, “Front the Royal Oak!” Recitations of this story ultimately led to the variation, Front Royal, and the name stuck. Where the Royal Oak once reigned now stands a charming gazebo on the town square, within view of the Front Royal Visitor Center. Make this one of your first stops in town (or visit our interactive visitor site online at www.discoverfrontroyal. com), followed by a stroll down Main Street, a slice of small-town Americana lined with antique stores, galleries, and gift shops. And don’t miss the schedule of special events. The gazebo is a favorite gathering place for weekly concerts and farmers market. Cont. on page 42
