13301 N Woolridge Rd
One of the first major industrial sites in the United States became a 44-acre preserve when Mid-Lothian Mines Park opened in 2004. Now dedicated to the citizens of Chesterfield County, past and present, the cut stone ruins of the mines surrounded by the beautiful woodland testifies to the courage, innovation and sacrifice of those who started the U.S. industrial revolution.
The park is intersected by N. Woolridge Rd. On the western side is a pond with a walking path and large parking area. On the eastern side is a smaller parking area providing access to wooded trails featuring the mine ruins. A tunnel runs under N. Woolridge Rd. and connects the two park sections.
