- Located where the old town of Petersburg once thrived during the 1790s, Bobby Brown State Park is named in memory of Lt. Robert T. Brown,U.S. Navy, who gave his life in World War II. When water levels are low, visitors can see some foundations of the old town and imagine large plantations once flourishing. This 665 acre park's strategic location on a 70,000 acre man-made lake provides excellent hiking, fishing and water recreation.
