1. Union Church - Circa 1825 Marker
Inscription. Built through the efforts of Mrs. William Steenbergen, the church has served as a meeting place for Mt. Jackson churches. The cemetery represents a history of the town and its early citizens. Daniel Grey, a Revolutionary War soldier, is buried in the cemetery. During the Civil War, the church housed both armies, documented by the writings found on the walls. Organized in 1934, the Mt. Jackson Garden Club has played a supporting role in preserving this historic Landmark.
