Amelia County offers the best of both rural and city life. It’s just 35 miles west of Richmond, making it easy to drive into the city to shop, dine, or see the sights. But it’s also filled with plenty to do if you love the outdoor life or history. Amelia County is home to Sayler’s Creek (also spelled Sailor’s Creek) State Park, an important historic site in the American Civil War, as well as countless parks, riverfront and lakes.

The area is home to 12,695 residents. Most of the land is forest and farm. Winterhaven is a plantation that is now a bed and breakfast. Several other plantation houses, some dating back to the 1700s, remain intact and are private homes.

One of the interesting tidbits about Amelia County is its mineral wealth. The county was settled in 1745 and became known for its mineral deposits and mineral-water spring. By the 19th century, spas were created around these mineral springs where weary travelers could refresh themselves and ‘take the waters.’ Amazonite, a green feldspar mineral, is abundant in the county.
