Ruth & Paul Henning Conservation Area

This 1,534-acre picturesque forest with scenic glades was purchased and donated by Paul Henning, producer of such timeless TV classics as the Beverly Hillbillies, as it was his wish to preserve the area for all to enjoy. The conservation area is ripe with history as post-Civil war vigilante groups, known as baldnobbers, would meet and patrol on the balds. It also served as the scene in Harold Bell Wright’s book Shepard of the Hills.

Shrine of the Holy Spirit

Inspired and compelled by faith, this 100 ft. monument constructed of blue granite by local entrepreneur Gene Bicknell has been wowing visitors since it’s dedication on April 11, 2010. Mr. Bicknell constructed this monument as a labor of faith with the belief that this place of worship would be blessed by God. The grounds offer a peaceful place for prayer or meditation, a chapel that can accommodate up to 80 people and often holds different types of formalities, such as weddings, vow renewals, military ceremonies, etc. When the sun sets and lights illuminate the Shrine, it is truly a sight to behold.
