History along the Trail

Historic and Geologic Significance

The Fall Line alignment will connect areas of significant historical and cultural impact through Central Virginia. From Native American villages and early colonial settlements built on innovations in industry and metalworking along the James and Appomattox Rivers to battles that defined the American Civil War, and from era-defining slave rebellions to Black and African American social and thought leadership, this transformational trail will not only connect our region with a world-class spine for active transportation, it will provide access to understanding our peoples’ lives, stories, and accomplishments.
