James Burns Patrick
1923 to 2017
Jim Patrick was the first president of Historic Staunton Foundation and, along with his wife Eleanor, one of our founding members. Their vision and perseverance made all the difference in the character of our city today. At a time when the trend was to widen streets or build highways through cities and towns – and tearing down historic buildings and homes that lay in their paths – Eleanor and Jim fought for the preservation of Staunton’s architectural heritage.
We will be forever grateful for their leadership.
