Chesterfield County

Home to 261,000 people, Chesterfield County has been named one of the "fastest growing, wealthiest and most educated areas in the country" by American Demographics magazine. Spanning 446 square miles, the county is graced by a diverse combination of fertile farmland, panoramic riverfront, lovely residential communities and well-planned office and industrial centers.

Chesterfield County has dedicated over 8,700 acres of land to 32 parks, including Pocahontas State Park, named for the famous Indian Princess. The history of Chesterfield County is especially intriguing and comes to life for visitors through annual festivals, reenactments and tours of the many landmarks. Among these is Henricus, the site of the second English settlement, founded in 1611. Located along the banks of the James River in the southeastern portion of the county, Henricus hosts several annual events complete with period costume, housing and foods!

Because of Chesterfield's strong commitment to education, its school system ranks among the top in the country. The prudent management of finances and government has earned Chesterfield County a AAA bond rating, one of just a few nationwide.
