The closest stop to Rocklands Farm was up the road toward Beallsville, where artists like David Therriault welcomed tourists into their studios to see works such as stone sculptures. The Artisan Tour consisted of 15 stops spread out between Poolesville and Glenwood. Each stop was at the home and studio of the artists displaying and selling their work. Their mediums ranged from stone sculptures to hand-blown glass.
