Dinwiddie County

Dinwiddie County is known for its rich heritage, natural resources, convenient location, and breathtaking plantation homes. Historic inns, museums, battle sites, the 363-acre Pamplin Park, and special events held throughout the year combine to give this community a wonderful sense of history.

Agriculture contributes significantly to Dinwiddie's growing economy and to the quality of life the friendly residents of this county enjoy. Beautiful Lake Chesdin, located along the northern rim of Dinwiddie County, provides numerous recreational opportunities for everyone; the County Department of Parks and Recreation offers year-round activities for entire families, from seniors to children; and the county's award winning schools help prepare young people for fulfilling lives into adulthood.

Part of the Appomattox Basin of Virginia, Dinwiddie County is located in the southeastern section of Virginia bordered by the Nottoway and Appomattox Rivers, Namozine Creek, and the counties of Chesterfield, Amelia, Nottoway, Brunswick, Sussex, and Prince George. Interstate highways I-85 and I-95 provide access to major markets north and south, and U.S. Route 460 provides transportation east and west. The East Coast's main switching station for three major railroad lines, Collier Yard, is on the edge of Dinwiddie County. And the Petersburg-Dinwiddie County Airport and Industrial Park provide many opportunities for companies looking for a place to call home.
