Description

Broad Creek, once known as Little Run, rises at the foot of Grindstone Ridge near Mt. Sidney in Augusta County VA, and flows easterly to Middle River into which it discharges near Mt. Meridian.

"Grindstone Ridge is the range of hills paralleling the Valley Turnpike, now Route 11, from Staunton to Harrisonburg. This range of hills was called Pisgah Heights by early settlers in the area. Little Run has had several names since Colonial days. The segment of it crossed by the Mt. Sidney-Pleasant Valley Church Road has become known locally as Shover's Creek, the segment crossed by the West View School Craig Shop Road as Miller's Creek, and the segment crossed by the West View School-Port Republic New Hope Road as Walker's Creek. On recent topographic maps, the stream is designated as Broad Run." May 1987
