The village of Sandston has shown remarkable progress and presents today one of the finest residential suburbs around the city of Richmond. Streets are well paved and lighted, there are churches, schools, a library, stores, service stations, telephones, electricity, good water, morning and evening newspapers, and transportation. Sandston has come a long way since 1920, as much by the diligence and cooperation of its citizens as by the smiling face of good fortune. From a jumble of dilapidated war built shacks in 1920, a modern and attractive village has arisen; a village where democracy is the keynote and cooperativeness a virtue.
