The Virginia Handbook
by Blair Howard, Mary Burnham, & W. Burnham Jr. (Hunter Publishing)
Smyth County may appear just a dot on the map, but don’t let appearances fool you. Its mountainous terrain holds gems waiting to be discovered by the adventurous traveler. Marion, the county seat, has a Main Street full of shops and historic buildings.
North of Marion, a winding road leads to Saltville, a town whose mineral deposits have attracted both man and beast for millions of years. In the southwest portion of the county stands Mount Rogers, Virginia’s highest point and a playground for thrill seekers. This eTrail provides detailed information on sights, events, entertainment, shopping, dining, accommodations, and transportation in this area of Virginia.
