Destinations Years ago when I interviewed Olympian equestrian Joe Fargis who said he had a horse ranch in Middleburg, Va. Without looking it up on the map, I assumed it was a few hours away. A few weeks ago, I drove there and found out it's only a 45-minute drive; but once I got there, I did feel like I was hours away from Beltway and city traffic, hectic work schedules and deadlines. My destination was the 340-acre Salamander Resort and Spa, which opened August 2013 in Middleburg and is definitely designed for relaxation.

With the closing of the Middleburg post office this month, residents of that small western Carroll County town now have to drive down the road to Uniontown or Keymar to pick up their letters, mail a parcel or register an important packet.One thing they won't be able to do is to pick up the latest town gossip or keep up with local events listed on the wall of the post office that served as unofficial meeting place and town hall for the community. The trend toward post office consolidation, zip codes instead of postmarks, and sharp cost-cutting has finally caught up with Middleburg.

They're the kinds of tales that tease out the treasure hunter in all of us. There's the one about the $40,000 Stickley music stand cloaked by neglect and nabbed for $500, and the $1,100 Steuben Arts and Crafts bowl with a $3 price tag. But antiquing in Northern Virginia's fox-hunting country is a lot like the sport itself. It's mostly about the thrill of the chase and the spectacular ride through gorgeous countryside. It turns out that the gold-mine find is as elusive as the crafty little fox. That doesn't mean you'll go home empty-handed.

Middleburg is a place people pass through on their way somewhere else.Residents of the once-thriving Carroll County village say they don't mind being scenery along the well-worn path between Westminster and Frederick. But it seems a cruel twist of fate for the community that had long fancied itself the Carroll County seat.Named for its location midway between those two cities, Middleburg today is handful of houses that blur into one mass of brick, stone and wood as travelers whiz past on Route 77.According to records kept by the Historical Society of Carroll County, activity around Middleburg dates to 1734 when a man named John Diggs had 100 acres surveyed in his name.
