There is a little town called Lahore in the Orange County, Virginia, U.S. In 2007, Noor Naghmi, the son of Abul Hasan Naghmi, a Pakistani broadcaster, brought the town to the news, before that no one knew about it. The town has existed since the 1850s and as the story goes, it was named by a couple who visited the Lahore in Punjab when there was no Pakistan.
Noor Naghmi who is a financial services professional in Vienna, Virginia bought around 235 acres of the town from the owner. He further plans to make a banquet hall remodeled after the famous Shalimar Gardens of Lahore, a library, and museum dedicated to the history of Lahore in Virginia and Pakistan.
