Good Evening Everyone and welcome to the newest entry for Powhatan Island!!!
@Kim SunwooThank you for the kind words! I appreciate it!
This entry covers the town of Gypsy Hill, which I named after Gypsy Hill Park in Staunton, Virginia. This town is one of the older towns in the state of Powhatan Island, and located just east of the tallest peak in the state, Gypsy Hill, which is a monadnock isolated from the Appalachian Mountains far to the west. The town recently experienced significant growth as many people moved to the town to escape relatively high cost of living closer to Powhatan City, and to be near the mountain and Powhatan National Forest, which surrounds the mountain and covers about 1/3rd of the entire southern island of the state. Gypsy Hill is also the home of the Powhatan Island Military Academy, a senior military college similar to The Citadel, Virginia Military Institute, and Norwich University.
Without further adieu, here is Gypsy Hill, showcasing the recently installed Meadowshire Terrain Mod by C.P., complementing his tree mod which I've had for years!

The town is filled with numerous historic neighborhoods, with most homes being built between 1705 and 1920:
Here is Powhatan Island Brewing Company, a fine craft brewery producing numerous varieties of delicious ales, located southwest of town:
And here is Powhatan Island Military Academy, or PIMA, this is a major work-in-progress and I will probably replace the parade ground with SimPeg's ploppable Civil War soldiers and add a bunch of other details to enhance the campus:
Football and lacrosse fields:
PIMA Obstacle Course:
The parade ground, where cadets participate in parades every Friday, and before home football games, a very popular event for the townsfolk!
And finally, here is the town's namesake, Gypsy Hill, as well as a closing picture showing a high-level view of the area:
Hope you enjoyed this entry, stay tuned for more!
