CONSTITUTION FOREST

In 1938, the celebration of the 150th anniversary
of the United States Constitution, the Virginia
Daughters of the American Revolution sponsored
the planting of Constitution Forest in this area.
With the help of the Civilian Conservation Corps
and the United States Forest Service, the memorial
forest commemorates the Virginia framers of the
Constitution. In 1987, the 45 acres of red and
white pine seedlings have matured to a forest
that provides protection for birds and other
wildlife as well as for the watershed of the
James River.
