The Rich Mountain Battlefield Association
The Rich Mountain Battlefield Foundation is working to preserve the Rich Mountain Battlefield and Camp Garnett, so that all of our citizens, now and in the future, will be able to appreciate this vital part of our heritage.
We traveled up the mountain road from the Coalton area and came out in Beverly. There are a few signs indicating historic Civil War events that took place here. It's mostly a drive and pull over type experience with few marked trails. Park and explore the Hart house location, especially the barn foundation across the road. The large boulders bear tributes to fallen soldiers carved in by their comrades that are still visible. Nice day trip if you're in the area.
Found this location by accident driving up a dirt road in rural West Virginia.
Interesting park and easy to get to, although some of the signs have not been replaced or fixed after hooligans shot them full of bullet holes, making some hard to read in places.
Love the beauty and history of this place
Great place to be outdoors n learn some history
