Enjoying a fresh seafood supper just got easier at Lake Anna. A new business has opened at the junction of Rt208 & Rt 652. CHICKEN NECKERS at Lake Anna.

Stampmill Sam’s Gold Adventure is being offered this summer at Lake Anna State Park. Not too many people realize the rich history we have in this area. Gold mining in the streams feeding the lake (and once the North Anna and Pamunkey Rivers) was a big vocation in the 19th century. The rangers at that state park show you how to still look for those nuggets -call the park or check their web site for dates and times. A fun thing to do for all ages.
