Rock Churches Tour

Rise and shine after a good night’s rest at the luxurious Primland Resort. Tour the countryside and visit five historic rock churches built in the 1920s by Rev. Bob Childress located in the tri-county area of Patrick, Carroll, & Floyd Counties. 

The tour takes about 3 hours with a total of 70 miles to travel and allows you to not only see part of our history, but to take in some beautiful mountain scenery.  The tour begins and ends at the junction of US Highway 58 Business and the Blue Ridge Parkway in Meadows of Dan, Virginia (Parkway Mile Post 177.7).
