Project gets support from state program

The Virginia Tourism Corporation (VTC) and state leaders have pledged support for the Hotel Weyanoke’s renovation and restoration project in Farmville — one that’s slated to create 76 new jobs and spur more than $7 million for the economy of the town.

The announcement was made Wednesday on the steps of the historic hotel, located at 202 High St. in downtown Farmville.
