- Upon entering Sky Meadows State Park one becomes absorbed with the beautiful 360-degree pastoral mountain views. As the drive ends, visitors are placed directly in front of the historic Mount Bleak House. The facility not only serves as the park's visitor center and office, it is furnished as a middle-class farmhouse giving visitors a peak at middle-class life during the 1850s. Interpretive programs are held throughout the summer, and weekends and holidays other times of the year.
When touring the site, be sure to walk around back and look at the gorgeous panoramic view. Notice the lack of satellite towers. Area citizens in conjunction with Virginia State Parks have gone to great lengths to preserve the 1850s view.
Picnic tables, restrooms, and gift shop are behind Mount Bleak.
