Third Sunday - March, 2013

Highland County, Virginia 

The Headwaters Presbyterian Church was built in 1899 as a chapel by the McDowell Presbyterian Church.

In May 1862 Stonewall Jackson crossed the mountains to the east and passed through this area to engage the Union forces at McDowell, just a few miles west of Head Waters. The Battle of McDowell was the first battle of Stonewall Jackson's successful Valley Campaign.
