Back in the days when I was driving from Norfolk to Baltimore, US 17 went right through a little area known as Gloucester Court House, in Gloucester County. Now, US 17 has been realigned and does not go through this area, which is in town of Gloucester. Virtual Tourist doesn't have Gloucester Court House listed separately.
At that time, the road was one way on each side of a brick wall which enclosed the square the the courthouse and jail. The fact that the main US 17 has been routed elsewhere is probably good. We frequently saw evidence that not all the cars made the turn in good order.
