This beautiful stretch of land, The Arsenal at Point of Fork, located at 8222 Bremo Road, Fork Union VA gained significance during the Revolutionary War as one of Virginia’s principal military installations. The site included a training ground, barracks, supply depot, and a very important arsenal. The arsenal was captured by the British troops at The Battle of Point of Fork on June 5, 1781. The arsenal became active again by late 1781, employing 132 men and continued to flourish for the next 10 years. Beginning in 1801, the arms of the arsenal were gradually moved to Richmond, and in 1809 the state sold the property. Present day, all that remains on the site are stone laid outlines of the armory and magazine. The remains of the magazine are about 6 feet deep with neatly laid stone interior walls. A variety of artifacts have been discovered on the site over the past several decades, including pieces of bayonet sockets and other rifle parts. The property is recognized by the National Registry of Historic Places.
Located in Fluvanna County, the Arsenal is approximately 45 minutes to Downtown Richmond, and 15 minutes from Charlottesville. The area has good access to I64, as well as several other routes including US 15 and US 250 and is bordered by Route 6.
The topography of the property is varied, ranging from rolling meadows to 1000 feet of bluffs overlooking the Rivanna River to woods and assorted small creek beds. Approximately 75 of the 228 acres are cleared rolling hills. Currently there is a small rancher in excellent condition located at the front of the property as well as 2 historic barns.
The property is zoned A1, Agricultural General. Some of the uses permitted by this zoning include but are not limited to; single-family dwellings, two family dwellings, rural cluster development (RCD), general farming, equestrian activities, horticulture and forestry, recreational facilities and shooting clubs. The RCD’s yield plan would allow for 104 lots on the subject property.
If the subject property will not be used for development, you can take advantage of The Virginia Land Conservation Incentives Act in order to gain substantial state tax credits that may be used by the owner or sold for cash. This would prohibit future development on the allotted parcel, but would ensure protection from future sprawl. Federal tax deductions would also apply.
