Westview Terrace Apartments for Rent(hide neighborhood information)
Westview Terrace residents live in a community that is situated between Quail Drive and Angus Road, Tellico Road and Kay Street. Residences are divided between single-family homes that were built in the late 1950s and early 60s, and newer townhouses and apartment complexes. The area has some access to public mass transit, although it is more common to own a vehicle in these neighborhoods.
Less than three miles from Westview Terrace sits the historic Williams-Brown House, a must-see destination for history lovers in the area. The two-story brick home, which once served as both a residence, post office, and general store for travelers in the mid-19th century, has been converted into an educational and cultural museum, and is officially listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Guests can view three floors of locally significant artifacts that range from Native American items discovered at a nearby settlement to items from the Civil War years to objects relating to the daily life of Salem residents in 19th-century Virginia. The museum also sponsors a variety of local art exhibits, hosts several workshops and programs annually, and maintains an historic herb garden on site.
For the dedicated angler, or someone who wants a great experience their first time out, arrange a day with Fishing by Fly Guide, a guided fishing trip coordinator located within five miles of the neighborhood. Led by one of three guides, each with more than a decade of fishing experience, the customer will get to spend an entire day on the James River, where he may land a smallmouth bass or musky, or on the Jackson River in search of trout. Overnight camping and fishing trips can also be arranged to the Back Country, where there is an excellent chance at catching a number of brook trout in season.
