WOODSTOCK, Va. (AP) -- Shenandoah County's section of the state's Artisan Trail Network now has a name and a slogan.

The trail will be called "O Shenandoah County Artisan Trail." The slogan is, "Handmade treasures, locally grown goodness and breathtaking beauty around every bend."

The Daily News-Record ( ) reports that county tourism director Natalie Wills unveiled the name and slogan at a Board of Supervisors meeting last week. They were chosen by residents and the tourism office.

Wills says the "O'' in the trail name is intended to be reminiscent of the folk song "Oh Shenandoah."

Thirty-five sites are already registered for the trail.

The Artisan Trail Network program promotes local businesses, craftsmen and artists.
