White Sulpher Springs Confederate Soldiers Monument
The Monument is all that's left of the White Sulpher Springs Resort that was used as a hospital during the
Civil War here in Montgomery Co.
Coming from Roanoke on old Route 11- 460 west , at the foot of Christiansburg Mountain, turn right on state Rt.641 The Den Hill Rd. Watching your odometer , travel 2.5 miles (winding road). You will pass by a number of houses, through a small tunnel. In a small turn to the right there are a set of wooden steps leading down the bank , easy to see (they are visible on one of the pictures).
If you are coming from the Blacksburg , Christiansburg area, I think the easiest way, is to turn off Rt 460 at University Motors, the Jennelle Road, travel down to the intersection of Rts. 723/641. There is a store there at the crossroads. Travel 641 (Den Hill Rd.) 7 tenths of a mile to the next intersection (641/603). Go straight through the Intersection. Take 641, 1 mi.4 tenths to said set of steps. You can see the Marker from the road, but its just a stones throw to it , the grass was not high - Sat 5-21-05.
I don't know who mows around the area, but I have been there before and the grass hasn't been objectionable .If any one has any questions , drop me a line or I'm in the book.
Its a nice drive as well!
