Madison County

On April 16, 2016, Piedmont Environmental Council hosted our fifth annual mountain heritage celebration at Graves Chapel in Graves Mill, Virginia. Nearly 300 attended over the course of the day - visitors learned about the rich culture and traditions of the families that once called these mountains home. Many even walked the trails through Shenandoah National Park to see some of these former home sites in person. It was a wonderful day, filled with music, memories, and a renewed appreciation for the Blue Ridge Mountain heritage. Thank you to all who took part!

Those who attended April 16th’s Madison's Mountain Heritage event had the opportunity to buy one of our Historic Tract Maps, which we had on display at the event. These tract maps show the ownership of land within the Madison County portion of the Blue Ridge Mountains prior to the creation of Shenandoah National Park. The maps, in a 24x36’ format, are now available for our members to purchase for $15, including tax, shipping, and handling. Those who purchase a print of this map, will also receive a digital version of the map.
