Nestled between Virginia’s famous James and Appomattox Rivers, historic Chesterfield County boasts a gorgeous countryside, thriving economy and incredible legacy dating back to the roots of the United States.
The foundation of modern-day Chesterfield was laid with the 1611 founding of the Citie of Henricus – the second successful English settlement in the New World. And the history only goes deeper from there! Chesterfield County was once the home of Pocahontas, was the site of the first tobacco crops in the New World sold back to Europe, was home to the first American college and hospital, the first place in the nation where coal was commercially mined, and was even the site of the first paved roads and railroads in the state of Virginia.
Today, the county is the fourth-largest in the state by population, with a population spread across 446 square miles of gorgeous Tidewater land.
