American Bowler by Pedro Ledesma III

Located on Route 156 and Highland Ave, near Cavalier Square

After living in major cities throughout the world, I have been compelled to revisit the small-town Texas roots of my childhood by way of visits to other small towns in America. The hope is to better understand both myself in my adulthood and America in its current state.

One morning in 2018, I found myself in need of a sunrise. A quick study of a map for a good spot led me to the confluence of the James and Appomattox Rivers. I jumped on my motorcycle and headed toward a quiet morning of self-reflection. I didn't know it at the time, but that trip to see the sunrise on November 2, 2018 at beautiful City Point would be the first of countless trips I'd make to Hopewell, VA, which quickly became the first town in my Small Town America project.
