Spotsylvania County's 407 square miles (source: George Washington Regional Commission) contain a mix of beautiful rural landscape alongside an energetic, growing community. Spotsylvania is one of Virginia's fastest-growing counties, largely because of its desirable location along Interstate 95, midway between metropolitan Washington and Richmond. 2010 U.S. Census figures indicate an estimated County population of 122,397.
Known as the "Crossroads of the Civil War," Spotsylvania County is rich in historical resources. The County welcomes visitors to Fredericksburg and Spotsylvania County Battlefields National Military Park -- Chancellorsville, Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania Courthouse, and Wilderness battlefields. In the Spotsylvania Courthouse area, the Historic Courthouse, Old Jail and Spotsylvania Museum are among the scenic attractions.
Lake Anna offers 13,000 acres of swimming, sailing, water-skiing and sport fishing. At the Lake Anna State Park, visitors and the community enjoy picnicking, horseback riding, bicycling, hiking trails and camping. Other natural attractions include the Ni River Reservoir and the Hunting Run Reservoir. Community gathering places for sports, music and other outdoor activities include the County's award-winning Patriot Park and the popular Loriella Park, with its lighted sports fields and swimming pool. The growing Spotsylvania community has attracted many dynamic commercial and retail businesses which serve area residents and visitors.
