Biographical or historical data
  • The Department of Conservation and Recreation was created in 1989 by an act of the General Assembly. Charged with the mission to "conserve, protect, enhance and advocate the wise use of the Commonwealth's unique natural, historic, recreational, scenic and cultural resources," the Department of Conservation and Recreation is comprised of the following divisions: State Parks; Soil and Water Conservation; Natural Heritage Program; Recreational Planning; and Dam Safety.
  • The High Bridge Trail State Park will encompass a 33.5 mile stretch of land formerly used by Norfolk Southern Corporation, known earlier as the Norfolk and Western Railway. Passenger train service on this track stopped in the 1970s, and in 2006 the deed to the property was transferred from Norfolk Southern to the Commonwealth of Virginia. The land is now undergoing a "rail-to-trail" conversion, and is operated by the Department of Conservation and Recreation. The trail will run nearly parallel to U.S. Route 460, connecting Pamplin and Burkeville, Virginia, as well as cross High Bridge over the Appomattox River.
