LOL...yep, it's a rather different name for a town! Here's a quick background on the name..."In 1749, Thomas Stuart purchased 353 acres (1.43 km2) near the South River, a tribuary of the South Fork of the Shenandoah River. 'Draft' probably refers to the document drafting the land sale or is a reference to the river itself (draft is an old term for river or creek and is part of the name of several such in the area). The plain on the south side of the river tends to channel the wind, thus forming a rather constant draft."
