Scottsville Museum brings the town's history to life, from its beginnings as an 18th century James River settlement to its shining era as a bustling 19th century river and canal port. It also depicts Scottsville as a center of Civil War activity through its re-emergence as a thriving community in the 20th century. Housed inside the former Disciples of Christ Church, built in 1846, the museum displays permanent and rotating exhibits on James River transportation, the Civil War, Native American artifacts, school life, theater, clothing, toys, furniture, and photographs.
