1. Historic Districts Marker
Clarke County is proud to be home to two historic driving tours. They include all four of our historically designated towns and villages. Combined with the National Register Historic Districts of which they are part, they make up over 38 percent of the land mass of Clarke County and contain over 1500 contributing sites and structures. The driving tours spotlight 60 of these sites, 17 of which are on both the Virginia Landmarks Register of Historic Places.

As you walk through the towns and villages and drive through the county, please remember most of the historic buildings are privately owned and not open to the public. Where the public is welcome, a telephone number is given so you can call for visiting hours. (See brochures)
