Stone Walls

Warren County, Virginia

After passing the Cool Springs Church on the Gooney Manor Loop, the woodland gives way to open pasture fields bordered and sometimes crossed by massive, dry laid stone walls. Some of the walls are nearly six feet high and have stood for generations. Walls of this type are uncommon in Virginia. In 2003, the William and Mary Center for Archaeological Research documented the stone walls of Gooney Manor and the study, which contains an excellent overview of the history of the area, is available.
