The area also has a very high concentration of museums and historical sites to explore, including Government Island, the 17-acre quarry located right in the heart of Stafford. This scenic spot once provided sandstone for constructing the US Capitol and is now a popular destination for joggers, birdwatchers, and history buffs.
