Prisons Foundation Covid-19 Memorial Grove is a one-acre expanse of land in Linden, Virginia, one hour from Washington, DC, that commemorates victims of Covid-19 in prison. Situated on land owned by the Prisons Foundation, it commemorates the illness and deaths in prison among inmates and staff during the Covid-19 pandemic.
The PF Covid-19 Memorial Grove is a beautiful tract of land that overlooks the Shenandoah Valley. The Grove has been left in its natural state and is open to the public with no admission charge. In addition to pathways throughout the PF Covid-19 Memorial Grove, hand-painted signs and markers have been placed throughout that contain the names of prisons where the pandemic has been most devastating.
The PF Covid-19 Memorial Grove is located at the corner of High Top and Crossway Lanes in Linden, Virginia. Never closing, it is open to visitors day and night throughout the year, including holidays.
Situated minutes away from the PF Covid-19 Memorial Grove is Saint Dominic’s Monastery on nearby Monastery Road. The monastery is the residence of cloistered contemplative clergy and is also open to visitors.
The PF Covid-19 Memorial Grove was created and exists through the generous support of private individual donors.
