Preservation: Point of Fork, VA

Site of an important arsenal at the junction of the James and Rivanna Rivers, the British seized the site in the summer of 1781. After the war, a more substantial armory was built for use by the Virginia militia. The site is now private property, but the landowner has allowed archaeologists to investigate the historic features remaining underground. We will update this site regarding future discoveries here.
