Emory & Henry's Doctor of Physical Therapy Program is located in the historic community of Marion, Va., some 20 miles north of the main E&H campus with direct access to Interstate 81.
Nestled in the highlands of southwestern Virginia, Marion boasts of access to some of the region’s most breathtaking surroundings. As famous for its spectacular outdoor recreation as it is for its most famous product, Mountain Dew, Marion is the gateway to both Hungry Mother State Park and the highest peak in Virginia, Mount Rogers. Within miles of hiking and biking trails, stocked trout streams and a 100-acre mountain lake, Marion is “The Heart of the Highlands” with the people and opportunities that would make for students in the E&H D.P.T. program a comfortable home.
The community is also home to the famous Lincoln Theatre. Beautifully restored in 2004, the theatre plays host to the nationally-televised Song of the Mountains performances as well as a variety of other musical and theatrical entertainment opportunities. Visitors to Marion often enjoy overnight lodging at the historic Francis Marion Hotel, just down the street from the Lincoln Theatre.
