“Catch Some River History!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 June 2014

Canal Basin Square is an Outdoor Transportation History Park, on the site of the old James River and Kanawha Canal Turning Basin, located at 249 Main Street in the charming and quaint river town of historic Scottsville, Virginia. It is the site of the Scottsville Batteau Festival, held every June, with live music, food vendors, artisans, and crafters. This picturesque park is the perfect stop to enjoy an afternoon of strolling the park, seeing all of the displays, and learning more about the history of America's Founding River.
