Join us in celebrating Scottsville–Past and Present. Visitors can explore the beginnings our town by visiting the Museum and the Canal Basin Square–an outdoor museum celebrating the Batteau period of our history. Walk to Valley Street to investigate our future. From the remodeled “Jail” now the Visitors’ Center, to Victory Hall Theater–Home of the Victory Hall Players and The Scottsville Center for Arts and Nature, cross the parking lot to “Focus” a gallery for three local artists. Check out the levee system from Scottsville Lake in the Van Clief Nature Area to the meandering of the Mink Creek–notorious for flooding the town–to the James River. This is just a beginning sampling of our Town!
