New Kent is home to many historic homes and battlefields. The citizens here are proud to preserve the heritage and rural character of the area.

After all this, if you want to kick back in a nice restaurant/bar go to the Sportsmen Tavern. This is a neighborhood bar and grill that often turns into a music venue.

New Kent County History
The first European settlers noted in New Kent were of English extraction. New Kent was named after Kent in England. Land grants from England to early settlers gave way to huge plantations. New Kent was originally formed out of Charles River County, one of the 8 original Shires (along with Henrico County) that the Virginia Territory was divided into. Colonization got started in New Kent County when Captain John Smith visited the native American village of Cinqotek (presently the town of West Point). The tribe entertained and fed him. He bought several hundred bushels of corn for a few small blue beads by telling the natives these beads were reserved for powerful kings. The Captain was a great teller of tall tales and was enamored by many of the tribes. Even though he was captured by the Powhatans and fixed for execution, he got out with his skin. Princess Pocahontas, daughter of the Powhatan chief, insisted Captain Smith be let go. He fared better than many other colonists. Years later, the indians were driven out of New Kent by the colonists after fighting the Indian War of 1644. Then Kent County was named after Kent County, England. The first town in Kent County was Brick House which also became the county seat. In 1791, the village of New Kent became the county seat. The ownership of West Point township jostled back and forth between New Kent and other counties. West Point became a busy port transporting tobacco and other cash crops grown on New Kent's plantations and warehoused near Eltham. Providence Forge became a trading center with canals dug along the Chickahominy River. Iron works and mills were constructed at Old Forge Pond. This equipment was buried by New Kent residents during the American Revolution and the Civil War to keep it safe.
