Welcome to the Local History and Genealogy Collection of the Appomattox Regional Library System. Located in Hopewell, Virginia this collection consists of primary documents, photographs, slides and books on the history of Hopewell, Prince George County and Dinwiddie County. ARLS is digitizing the LHGC in order to better serve its patrons and to facilitate the effortless use of these primary resources for their research needs.
