Sculpted by time and the forces of nature; this landmark is visible to all those who choose to look westward from Lexington.
Those two flat topped mountains are iconic in their representation of Rockbridge County and are etched deeply within the memory of all those who live here.
To gaze westward from Lexington one is always reassured by the visual silence and majestic grace of House Mountain and the shadowy contrasts of its ridges and valleys. To see those two mountains on the horizon is to know one is truly home.
