This self-driving tour showcases three neighborhoods which reflect the evolution of Martinsville and Henry County from a manufacturing center for furniture and textiles, to an area which welcomes diverse businesses and is now a haven for retirees. Start in the shadow of historic Stoneleigh mansion in Stanleytown, where a cluster of elegant homes were built starting in the 1920s for local residents. Forest Park was developed thirty years later to accommodate Martinsville city’s growth and increasing wealth. In the 1990s, development of estate homes in Hunt Country Farms in nearby Henry County began. Each showcased neighborhood has its own charms, but all reflect the gracious lifestyle of the region.
