In This Place: Pamplin City - Part Five

Appomattox County, Virginia 

The future of Pamplin City is cloudy, but the town could receive a boost with the completion of the High Bridge Trail State Park, a 34 mile long trail that would reach Pamplin along the abandoned Norfolk Southern railroad line between Pamplin and Burkeville. The trail could bring tourism to the town, encouraging new business to serve visitors who today by-pass Pamplin City on Route 460. and never even know it is there.

For more about Pamplin City, and other forgotten towns in Virginia, I highly recommend the book Lost Communities of Virginia (University of Virginia Press, 2011)
