The story of Rockwood Manor, our historic inn, begins with Francis Bell. Francis was an adept cattle trader and, as such, traveled the Valleys of Virginia bringing cattle back to his home farm in Swoope, Augusta County, VA, which he ran with his brother Samuel Hays Bell. In his travels to the New River Valley he met and learned from master trader James Randal Kent who was married to Mary Cloyd and lived at Buchanan's Bottom (now known as Kentland and owned by Virginia Tech). J.R. Kent was the wealthiest man in Montgomery County.
