A monument marks the location of the Montgomery White Sulphur Springs Resort. During the Civil War the resort was ran by the Confederate Government as a General Hospital. Wounded, sick, and recovery soldiers filled the spacious resort and were cared for by Catholic Nuns, local slaves, and military personnel. More that 200 soldiers died at the hospital and are mostly buried in unmarked graves. Montgomery White Sulphur continued to be a resort in post-war years until it was destroyed by a flash flood after the turn of the century. The monument that stands today was donated by the local UDC. Most of the resort property is privately owned but visitation to the area known as the Devil's Armchair, where the monument sits, is welcomed. Hours: Dawn to Dusk
