South Of Nellysford
Nelson County, Virginia
Back in 2008 Peter and Betsy Agelasto of Elk Hill made sure there was a permanent marker put up to remember the dozens of people that died here in Nelson. Hurricane Camille was their fate. Camille was one of the 10 most devastating hurricanes in history. Each year The Agelasto’s have Amy Webb place commemorative wreath where the marker is at the start of the Rockfish Valley Trailhead.
Nelson County’s Museum of Rural History has an entire room devoted to the history of Hurricane Camille and its effect on Nelson County. You can see the old photographs above along with countless more from photographer Brower York’s collection.
