Open House for Brand New Philpott Lake Marina Set for Sunday


Henry Co., VA - This weekend is a new beginning for Philpott Lake in Henry County. Their marina burned down back in 2001, and this Sunday, they'll celebrate the opening of the brand new Philpott Lake Marina.

Crews just recently completed construction on the $1.35 million project.

The marina includes a convenience store, restrooms, a picnic area, a fueling station and 40 boat slips.

Henry County Parks and Recreation says they've been getting a huge response from the community on this. They only have seven boat slips left available for rent.

"We also expect this to be a big economic development opportunity for the county and bring more visitors in to use the lake and enjoy the lake and also the amenities here in Martinsville and Henry County," said Roger Adams, Director of Henry County Parks and Recreation.

The public is invited to tour the Philpott Lake Marina at an open house this Sunday from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
