Goochland County History
In 1781 British General Charles Cornwallis marched through Goochland during the American Revolution and destroyed Elk Hill which was Thomas Jefferson's Goochland estate. General LaFayette, our hero helper from France, went back to France for more French help. He came back to America and blocked Cornwallis' at Yorktown while General George Washington prepared to fight the British with the help of French troops sent by King Louis XVI. On a American tour in 1824, Lafayette stopped off at Powell's Tavern in Goochland on his way to see Thomas Jefferson at Monticello. He was met with much revelry.
During the Civil War, Union Colonel Ulric Dahlgren planned to capture the Confederate capital of Richmond by freeing 12,000 Union prisoners from Richmond's Belle Island. In 1864, Dahlgren and his troops went looking for General Henry Wise at his house in Goochland. His daughter said he was in South Carolina. Really he was rushing to Richmond to warn Confederate troops of Dahlgren's intentions. Dahlgren and his men proceeded to the Confederate Secretary of War James Seddon's Goochland home at Sabot Hill. His wife invited them in for libations and hospitality. She knew what was going on. She detained them long enough for General Wise to warn the Richmond troops to take up defensive positions. The Confederate troops in Richmond defeated Dahlgren's blitz.
With all this amazing history, Goochland County Historical Society is a god-send for preserving artifacts and doing all they can to sustain local traditions. Though it has existed since 1968, the society didn't have a home until 1980 when the Goochland Board of Supervisors granted use of the Old Stone Jail which was built with stones dug up and hauled up the banks of the James River during construction of the James River & Kanawha Canal (circa 1833). This home doubles as the Cabell Library which is open to citizens for research in whatever areas they choose- from local aspects of The American Revolutionary War, to The Civil War, to religious movements of the 1800s, to one's personal genealogy, to studies of the Anglo-American slave trade. This society caps off the already amazing history of the county.
