Weyers Cave Community Website

Weyers Cave is located in the center part of the beautiful Shenandoah Valley,  on the I-81 corridor which was the old Indian trail up and down the Valley. A spur came off the trail over to present day Grottoes, where there were caves in the mountains. Although Bernard Weyer was credited with finding the caves, he found them in what was known as “Cave Hill”, so the presence of caves in the hill was previously known.

Today, there are approximately 1000 houses in Weyers Cave. The town, which has no formal government of its own, is approximately fifteen minutes from Staunton VA, fifteen minutes from Harrisonburg VA, and about half an hour from Waynesboro VA. It is located within Augusta County and has its own Post Office. It is just inside the north border of Augusta County with Rockingham County.

Weyers Cave has a lot to offer! In addition to the Post Office and Volunteer Fire Department, there is Shenandoah Valley Regional Airport and Blue Ridge Community College.  Add to that United Bank, Carilion Health Clinic, Augusta Emergency Health Clinic, Shreckhise Shrubbery, Shreckhise Landscaping, Valley Pike Farm Market, Maple Lane Veterinary ClinicRocky’s, Christopher William Jewelers, Houff Transfer, IDM Trucking, Houff Feed and Fertilizer, Pepsi, Blossman PropaneDynamic Aviation, Equipping the Saints, Cerro Metals, Degesch,  three gas stations, and several other large industries — you have a well-rounded community. More about the businesses located in Weyers Cave as well a their contact information are given on the Business Page of this website.

One of the main industries, though, is farming. There are many dairy and beef cattle farms, as well as chicken and turkey farms in the area. You will be more likely to see a cow in the road than a true traffic jam in Weyers Cave!

The purpose of this page is to have a go-to place for local residents to get information quickly about the happenings, and those further away to see what is available! It is truly a wonderful place to live as well as to visit.

Where to Eat

If you go inside and walk to the back of Shops in the Old Shed, 3236 Lee Highway, you will find Grandmas Grill and Bakery. Several grandmas own this together, and they know how to cook and bake! They have lunches each day.

The Valley Pike Farm Market is on Route 11 just north of Weyers Cave Road about 1/4 mile. Oh, my! Two food trucks (one barbecue, one hamburgers) are just the start. They have a Boars Head Deli, coffee shop, ice cream shop, chocolate shop, and complete bar, as well as canned jams and other foods, and a fridge full of ready-to-grab-and-run foods. Along the  back of the huge barn is a l-o-n-g porch with tables and a view of the mountains. Gorgeous!

Is There a Cave in Weyers Cave?

The not-really-all-knowing webmistress understands that the answer is “no”, although there are almost certainly some very small ones around. The reason the town is named Weyers Cave is because Grand Caverns in Grottoes were formerly called Weyers Caves after Bernard Weyer who is crediting with first finding them. Even this is a bit wrong, since he found them in a place known as “Cave Hill.” So they knew there were caves in the hill before his “discovery.”

That’s another question.

These were grand and glorious caverns, with an organ and ballroom, and the closest train stop for visitors to the caverns was seven miles away — in what is now Weyers Cave. The conductor would call out “Weyers Cave” at the small train stop and that is how it got its name.

I’d LOVE to be proven wrong. Does anyone around know of any Caves in Weyers Cave???
