Progress at Fisher's Hill

The footbridge at Fisher's Hill Battlefield has reopened. It was blocked for months while improvements were made to the parking area.

Still, the sign marking the park has not been replaced yet so tourists who haven't been there before may be unable to find it, although there are directional signs on the way there starting on Route 11.

We saw new split rail fences on the battlefield.

Fisher's Hill played an important role in the 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaign. Although the battlefield is split by I-81, the scenery is still beautiful.


  1. I love that you are putting your picture with the posts... Nice to put a face to the great lessons you give us.

  2. love the new 'old style' fence!

  3. I didn't realize that Fisher's Hill was so beautiful. We're going to have to stop by the next time we are in that area -- if I can find it.

  4. It is a beautiful view. I like those split rail fences.
