Originally from New York we settled in Northern Virginia where we raised our 2 sons. After finding a Cabin on a Mountain in the Shenandoah Valley we decided to 'Semi-Retire' in Beautiful Staunton. We purchased our 1844 home 'Witz End' in 2004 where Lou has a Healing Practice and Ellen has just finished the restoration of our home. Ellen is a Real Estate Agent, owns the Staunton Antiques Center and is an amateur photographer and Lou plays Native American Flute leads Flute & Drum Circles. We are major Foodies and in March 2013 our younger son received 2 1/2 Stars from The Washington Post at 'Glass Haus Kitchen' in Charlottesville, VA. Our older son is studying Improv in Los Angeles.
