Orkney Springs, a historic resort, is noted for its medicinal waters. City residents, escaping the heat of summer, came from miles for its treatment. Also, grand tournaments were frequently held there. Since the 1920s, it has also been home to a respite of a different sort – Shrine Mont, a conference center of the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia.
