Amelia- A Great Place to Come Home To

Amelia County was established in 1735 from parts of Prince George and Brunswick counties. The County is named for Princess Amelia Sophia of Great Britain, daughter of King George II.

Just 35 miles southwest of Richmond, Amelia County, Virginia has access to all the resources of a large urban center, while providing the benefits of a small community. Amelia is known for its minerals, including the nation's best supply of Amazonite found at the Morefield mine.

Recreational opportunities abound in Amelia County, from the hunting and fishing that are so valued, to the Amelia Wildlife Management Area, over 50 Miles of Appomattox River frontage, Saylors Creek State Park, the Amelia County Parks and Recreation Department and the James L. Hamner Public Library. We also celebrate our County with the annual “Amelia Day Celebration” every Mother's Day Saturday and in August/September with the “Amelia County Fair” which we are proud to say was recently honored as the best small County Fair in Virginia. Each of these activities is family oriented, beloved by our people and continue to be highly anticipated events.
