Big Walker Lookout History Comes Alive: Battle of Wytheville

July 17 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm EDT

Once a year we take time to review The Battle of Wytheville, Tolland’s Raid, and Molly Tynes ride. This is all part of the history of the area and we wish to honor all who fought to protect their land and families. This day we will fly the American flag and the Civil War battle flag. Some of the activities include: Sons of Confederate Veterans re-enactors, an author, and music of the region and time period.

Plan to make a day of it! Enjoy the sights and sounds of the mountains and our history!

Hot dogs, snacks, drinks, & delicious ice cream are available for purchase at Big Walker Lookout in the BW Country Store.

Virginia’s oldest privately owned scenic attraction: Big Walker Lookout is celebrating 75 years in business.

Local authors do book signings and have books for sale all summer long. Big Walker Lookout, a Crooked Road venue, will host this Summer’s Mountain Top Music featuring local musicians, some returning favorites as well as fresh new groups & bands.
