About Egglestons History
Eggleston springs Campground has a great view of the palisades, a landmark which played a vital role in the history of Virginia heroine Mary Draper Ingles. From the WV Scenic Trails Association:
Sites mentioned by [James Alexander] Thom in his novel [Follow the River] had particular significance to Eleanor and Debbie; they became the mileposts that reminded them of the hardships overcome by Mary on her arduous trek. The climb over the Palisades at Eggleston, Virginia was a spiritual experience of catharsis unsurpassed by any the women had experienced up to that point for it represented the end of their adventure at the very place where Mary was reunited with the culture she understood best. It was just beyond the massive columns of rock along New River that a ragged, halfstarved Mary passed from hope into the realization of that hope in a cornfield tended by a German immigrant neighbor of hers, Adam Harman.
