  • Lovely. Most interesting history. Beautiful court house. Great archives. Grounds very well kept. has original log buildings. 2 churches one still in use. Community Center. Cemetery. They different events held during the year. Post office. Academy building still there was for boys and girls. It is a small area covers both sides of the road. It is worth stopping and viewing. Yrs . gone by you could dive for pearls. There was pearl button factory in black rock. There was a ferry for crossing. A bridge at one time. You can see the old and new on the internet under Powhattan. I just met a lady that lived there. Walked the bridge. Family had a store there. This a small area but mighty with history. Listening to the lady tell her story made it more personnel for me. Her brothers medals and letters were donated to the historical society from WWI. By his parents. SHE HAS THE NEWSPAPER article framed.
  • Very well kept up. Enjoyed strolling the grounds.interesting history there. Nice place to picnic.
