Southside Virginia is the portion of the state defined roughly as the region south of the James River, east of the Blue Ridge, west of Tidewater, and north of North Carolina. This rural, scenic countryside offers a story that spans the American experience. Travelers will traverse land that has known the footsteps of American Indians, Colonial planters, enslaved and free people of color, Union and Confederate soldiers, and some of the commonwealth’s most distinguished families.
Discover some of Southside’s hidden treasures with tours of three remarkable historic homes, both private and public, to learn about the individuals and events that shaped this region and our state: Flat Rock, Prestwould, and Spring Bank.
