Historical Chesterfield County is where Pocahontas once lived, the first tobacco crops were grown to sell in Europe, the first college was established and the first American hospital was built. Feel the enduring presence of history from North America's second successful English settlement, the “Citie of Henricus,” founded in 1611 by Sir Thomas Dale, which serves as the foundation of modern-day Chesterfield, VA. Taking its name from Philip Dormer Stanhope, Fourth Earl of Chesterfield, the county's historical contributions include being the first place in the nation where coal was mined commercially, which led to the first paved road and the first railroad in Virginia.

Today, framed by the James and Appomattox rivers, 3,000-acre Lake Chesdin on its southern border and Swift Creek in its western section, Chesterfield County capitalizes upon the abundant natural beauty in an area of stirring historical significance. More than 319,000 residents call its 446 square miles home, in the midst of more than 1,000 neighborhoods and 20 public parks - including Pocahontas State Park, a true haven for nature lovers. Discover the authentic Victorian homes of Bon Air, the thoughtfully planned communities of Brandermill and Woodlake and the small-town appeal of Midlothian - recently named to Money Magazine's "Top 100 Places to Live."
