Glendale Springs is a special little place just a quarter mile from the Blue Ridge Parkway. Take the time to stroll through our community; you will be glad you did. Visit Ben Long’s famous fresco of the Last Supper housed in the Episcopal Church just a few steps away. Or stop in at Greenhouse Gifts; it could take hours to see the wide selection of crafts and specialty gifts they stock. In fact, you may be serenaded by live dulcimer music while you browse.
