Welcome to RVF
Our Foundation works hard to preserve the natural, historical, ecological and agricultural resources of the Rockfish Valley. We accomplish this by enriching the lives of our community by supporting the Rockfish Valley Loop Trail system, Spruce Creek Park and the lands associated with them. The mission furthers supports conservation, recreation, preservation, and environmental education and promotes a rural tourism experience in the Rockfish Valley of Nelson County, Virginia.

Further information about Rockfish Valley:
RVF has significant resources related to Hurricane Camille. They include the photo story of the impact on Beech Grove and the Rockfish Valley by the hurricane. Another resource is the insert from the August Daily Progress newspaper. It is a 24 page insert with stories and photos written and taken within the same week as the hurricane. You can access it at this link on this website.
If you have pictures or stories, please come share them with us or call the Rockfish Valley Foundation at 434-361-0271 and leave your name and number for us to call you back. We can copy your pictures on our cell phone and write up your story. After the exhibit, we will give what we have collected to the Nelson County Historical Society at Oaklands to add to their records of what happened in the Beech Grove and Nellysford communities.
