Tucked away in Buckhannon, WV.

It’s pretty interesting the things one comes across. This street is located in a small WV town, about 5,600 people. But even here, at some point at least, someone remembered a “little Phoenician” who synthesized a philosophy which helped shape the West.
 
In Buckhannon WV, this street is tucked away not too far from a small Methodist college. I’d be interested to learn when and by whom this street was named. There’s probably an interesting story there. 
If there’s ever going to be a location for an Appalachian Stoa, or a Stoic intentional community:  we’ve found it.

I picked up this leather bound, onion skin paper version of the first two Books of the Discourses, Enchiridion, and Fragments.

The inscription says 1924, which is pretty neat, and the printing itself might be 1890 (?).

It was waiting for me in the mail when I got back home.
