Located along the eastern seaboard, the City of Petersburg, with a population of approximately 34,000, is situated just 23 miles south of Virginia's state capital of Richmond at the juncture of I-95 and I-85. I-95 provides access to the eastern seaboard and I-85 provides direct access to the major business centers of the South. Petersburg, a 23.1 square mile city, is the center of the Appomattox Basin regional economy that includes the counties of Chesterfield, Dinwiddie and Prince George and the cities of Colonial Heights and Hopewell.
You can explore Petersburg's rich history by visiting their three Museums where the City's past comes alive through the architecture, decorative arts and Civil War artifacts. In addition, the Museums provide rich archives of photographs, documents and artifacts that pertain to Petersburg's history from the pre-Revolutionary War era through the twentieth century.
Having survived the ravages of war and the ups and downs of economic cycles, Petersburg is rising again today by welcoming the expansion of nearby Fort Lee, exuberating over new employment opportunities and poised for the excitement of the 2007 Jamestown Commemoration. In addition, Petersburg is undergoing the restoration of the City's waterfront harbor which will make it once more a focal point of the City and its historic downtown.
