Mineral

Mineral, VA, the Gateway to Lake Anna

Mineral event

Mineral was originally known as Tolersville, but adopted its current name when it incorporated in 1902 due to the mining industry that supported the community. It was the center of gold mining activity in Louisa County, and during its heyday, there were fifteen gold mines located within two miles of the town. A zinc and lead mine also operated in the area into the 1970s.

The Town of Mineral is the gateway to beautiful Lake Anna with its boating, fishing and watersport activities and is strategically located in central Louisa County. Mineral is the crossroads between three major cities, Richmond, Fredericksburg and Charlottesville.

Events include the Mineral Fireman's Fair and Parade, Lake Anna Wine Festival, Mineral Bluegrass Festival, and the annual Harvest Festival.
