The View from Tanners Ridge.

Near Stanley, Virginia.

This little church is now rented out as vacation lodging. It was part of the Tanners Ridge Mission high in the Blue Ridge Mountains, and is said to have been called All Souls Episcopal Church from 1937 to 1963.

The property was home to artist Robert E. Kuhn from 1966 until his death in 2000. During the Depression years he was hired as an artist for the Works Progress Administration. Later he took up abstract sculpture and many of his works are still on the property.

There are other residences on Tanners Ridge. Although this is only four miles from the town of Stanley, it is high enough on the mountain that the weather can be noticeably cooler.
