La Riviere, or as it is now known, Ingles’ Castle, sits in a little-known area of Radford, VA. The history of this late-Victorian mansion and the family which constructed it details a story of success in the face of seemingly insurmountable adversity.
Mountain Lake is an interesting place for many reasons. It’s a place of mystery, fame, and nature combined to create a beautiful mountain top lake and lodge for any to visit. The lake is one of only two natural lakes located in Virginia, the other being Lake Drummond in the Great Dismal Swamp. The lake is to be believed to have formed over 6,000 years ago from underground springs and rock slides creating dam like features to block water from draining down the mountain. Today the lake is used as a resort alongside the Mountain Lake Lodge providing as a hotel for visitors. The lodge now offers many activities from hiking to clay shooting and many more to provide guests with a great experience.
