Since 2013, Shenandoah University has been engaged in the preservation and protection of land along the Shenandoah River integral to the July 18, 1864, Battle of Cool Spring. Under the stewardship of the university, 195 acres, now known as the Shenandoah River Campus at Cool Spring Battlefield, is an outdoor classroom for the university and general public. Interpretive wayside markers on campus and across the river describe the battle at Cool Spring Farm (present-day Holy Cross Monastery).
