When the room is not in use for a party, you can enjoy the room for some great conversation, a quiet game of chess, or even a turn on the piano.
In its heyday the Lodge hosted caverns tours, swimming, dancing, parties, and provided memories for many people both local and from afar. We still hear from people who tell us stories of the "good old days in Rockingham County." Several visitors have told us that this was the landing spot for the first plane to land in the county. Although there is no longer a pool and the caverns are closed, they still are fond memories our visitors have shared with us.
