Welcome to Clarke County Tourism

Clarke County has become an oasis for the Washington, DC and Northern Virginia traveler. We are just 60 miles west of Washington, DC, 12 miles from Hollywood Casino and Race Track and 16 miles from historic Harpers Ferry. As soon as you crest the Blue Ridge Mountains into Clarke County you will know why Clarke County is referred to as the oasis. At the foot of the mountain is the Shenandoah River and beyond this famed American river are miles of gently rolling hills. This planned open space community provides not only scenic beauty but hiking on the Appalachian Trail, fishing, canoeing, rafting, and kayaking on the Shenandoah River and award winning wineries where you can choose the view of the mountains or a view of the valley below. Dining experiences range from a 5 star country inn and restaurant, to down home cooking at its very best. Entertainment of all types are around practically every bend and includes anything from art shows to music venues to hot air balloons and last, but hardly least, the many historic sites and museums.

Clarke County was the home of Lord Clarke, Revolutionary War General Daniel Morgan, George Washington’s daughter Nellie Custis and the birthplace of Robert E. Lee’s wife, Mary Anna Randolph Custis. With only 14,500 people living in the entire county, Clarke County’s rich history can still be viewed as it was 200 years ago.

Whether your interest is outdoor adventures, cultural and historic, arts and entertainment or just a relaxing sight seeing tour of unspoiled countryside, Clarke County is the place for you. Though Clarke County is only one hour from the Metropolitan Washington, DC area, we are a world away!


We are also a partner of Today’s Shenandoah Valley, a great resource for all the things there are to see and do in our beautiful Valley.

Barns of Rose Hill and The Handley Regional Library present Harry And Snowman Barns of Rose Hill, 95 Chalmers Ct., Berryville, VA. Dutch immigrant, Harry deLeyer, journeyed to the United States after World War II and developed a transformative relationship with a broken down Amish plow horse he rescued off a slaughter truck bound for the glue factory. Harry paid eighty dollars for the horse and named him Snowman. In less than two years, Harry & Snowman went on to win the triple crown of show jumping, beating the nations’ blue bloods and they became famous and traveled around the world together. Their chance meeting at a Pennsylvania horse auction saved them both and crafted a friendship that lasted a lifetime. Eighty-six year old Harry tells their Cinderella love story firsthand, as he continues to train on today’s show jumping circuit. Doors open at 6:30 and film starts at 7:00 PM Free Event!

About the Exhibit

Geraldine W. Kiefer, Ph. D., Professor of Art at Shenandoah University

The work is at the same time tactile, colorful, historical, imaginative and geographical, as it comprises digital reproductions and hand-drawn artifacts that resemble, but do not in any way replicate, maps from ancient, Renaissance , Enlightenment and modern (19th-century) civilizations. The goal of the work, which continues as an evolving series, is to meld the physical, diagrammatical and the spiritual in sparkling, colorful and, yes, dark mixtures that take the viewer on journeys only he or she can imagine until something magical and mysterious occurs.

Exhibit Dates: Sunday, October 1 – Saturday, October 28. Exhibit Admission is free. Our exhibits are open Tuesday-Saturday (Closed Mondays) from Noon to 3:00 PM as well as during concerts and by appointment.
