Discover the Charms of the Queen City

The Mary Baldwin campus is on 58 hilly acres overlooking Staunton, Virginia’s vibrant downtown area.

Just a few steps away from campus the city brims with an eclectic personality — described as sophisticated, energized, laid back, historic, beautiful, and welcoming. In town, you can find live music, a restored movie theater, art galleries, several coffee shops, weekly farmer’s markets, restaurants for all budgets, and some terrific shopping. Plus, there’s a world-famous Shakespeare theatre and the birthplace and library of a U.S. president. Five historic districts combined with modern facilities make Staunton a destination for filmmakers, festivals, conferences, and visitors from around the world.
Whether you’re into Shakespeare or community theater, punk rock or bluegrass, a neighborhood bar or corner coffee house, down-home cooking or haute cuisine, it’s a place that draws you in. It’s your college town.

Welcome to Staunton.
