Mary Martin Memorial Presbyterian Church

Mary S. Martin, a native of nearby Washington County, VA, started

work as a missionary in the Dry Fork section of Wise County in

May 1922. She made Virginia City Church her home base and

expanded her mission work into nearby coal camps. After sev-

eral years, she was able to raise funds to build three more

Presbyterian chapels. In 1937, this brick church was erected

in her name.
