Eye on Rockbridge

Bringing you stories that matter through data journalism

Investigating foreclosures


Throughout our three-month investigation we examined court records, constructed spreadsheets, analyzed data, and interviewed the people involved in area foreclosures to bring the community a local perspective on this national issue. More than 320 property owners in Lexington, Buena Vista, and Rockbridge County have lost their homes and investments since 2008.

Special thanks to Brenda Anderson at the Rockbridge Circuit Court, and Christopher Coleman, Buena Vista Circuit Court Clerk, for their assistance accessing court records; and to The News-Gazette for meeting with us during the planning stages of this project, and for sharing its public notices spreadsheet.
