Crockett Springs was a prominent resort that for 50 years attracted visitors from all over Virginia and beyond. Purchased in 1889 by the Virginia Arsenic and Lithia Springs Company, it featured a large hotel, medicinal baths, and recreational activities. The Crockett Springs water, reputed to treat a variety of ailments, was bottled and distributed widely. The Roanoke District of the Methodist Church acquired the property in 1957 and established the Alta Mons retreat facility on the site.
Please consider making a donation to the museum to help cover the cost of the marker. Any amount is appreciated.
