From nearly any point on the campus of Emory & Henry College, persons can see the mountains from which the Holston River descends. 1 The Holston’s North Fork flows from the ridges and limestone ledges of Bland County, under the southern lee of Burke’s Garden and Clinch Mountain. The first tentative streams of the Holston’s South Fork surface beneath the rhododendron and hardwoods on high ridges between Washington and Grayson counties, from springs that come from the rocky faces of Whitetop and Mount Rogers, the highest mountains in Virginia, and from the seeps and creeks on the side of Iron Mountain. Emory & Henry is located in the valley of the Holston’s Middle Fork, which rises at the base of Walker Mountain, 35 miles east of the college.
