Famous Waterfalls – Second Tallest in the State of Virginia!
This one-of-a-kind 50-acre parcel in the Virginia mountains hosts the state’s second-tallest waterfalls and a 5-acre, 42-foot deep freshwater lake suitable for any medium-cool temperature aquatic species. The drop of Russell Creek Falls at the highest point is 125 feet! Russell Creek runs directly from the falls into the Clinch River which has the highest concentration of rare and endangered aquatic species in the nation.
Due to cliff terrain, the falls are accessible only by trail or boat. The falls stream borders the Clinch River, the home of numerous rare aquatic species, the highest concentration in the USA.
There are several sites near the falls for yurts, tents, or small cabins. The lake is on flat ground with potential cabin sites near the shore and a large house site across the road from the lake. Other building sites are disbursed near the creek and the rest of the property is hilly woodlands. There are only 3 dwellings and a commercial garage sharing the gravel access road.
“Our mountain region has no hurricanes, killer tornadoes, extreme weather, no raging forest fires, riots, gangs, traffic jams, or high taxes. It does have seasonal lush greenery, hundreds of ATV, hiking, biking, and bird-watching trails, bountiful hunting and fishing, a state park, national forest land, and natural area preserves. Most of all we are known for a friendly culture, being respectful of our military and nation, and being good neighbors. Our ancestors fought in the Revolutionary War and according to three presidents and one defeated English General saved the fledgling United States of America. We are eager to show you around our unique place.”
Nearby is the small town of Saint Paul, Virginia, which is becoming a tourist destination as it evolves from a river, railroad, and mining town. The town’s pre-K-8 school is nationally recognized for its academic success.
The University of Virginia has an ecology center in the town and a satellite campus 20 miles to the west attended by 1500 students in an idyllic setting. The town also hosts a hybrid power plant that is specifically designed to process waste coal left behind over a hundred years of coal mining. The plant is the lowest emissions facility in the nation and has cleaned up 8million tons of waste coal so far. In fact, the lake is the result of a box cut deep mine opened in the 1970s which is now furnishing the resulting lake with 24/7 fresh underground aquifers.
