history & attractions

We are located in the historic, beautiful Shenandoah Valley area of Central Virginia.


Settlement of the area which is now Grottoes probably occurred around 1735. A grant of sixty thousand acres on the Shenandoah River, where the Augusta County/Rockingham County line is currently located, was made to John Thomas, John Taylor and William Beverly. The condition of the grant was that one family locate on each one thousand acres every two years. READ MORE

Grand Caverns

Grand Caverns was discovered in 1804 by Bernard (Barnette) Weyer while trying to retrieve one of his  hunting traps.  Weyer's Cave opened for tours in 1806, making Grand Caverns the oldest continually operating show cave in the United States.


From walking trails, a tennis court, driving range, playground equipment, shelter rentals and so much more, Mountain View Park and Grand Caverns Park offer something for everyone. LEARN MORE
