Powhatan County Community Summary
Powhatan County Real Estate
When you own Powhatan Real Estate you are part of a county which is 273 square miles of agricultural, rural, manufacturing, retail, and suburban land. Powhatan is in Central Virginia's Piedmont Region with a population over 22,000. Much of the old time feel of the area has been preserved and restored. The land is a mix of plateau and rolling grassy hills very conducive to agriculture, which is a big part of Powhatan's economy. The county is bordered by the scenic James River to the north overlooking Goochland County. The southern border is the Appomattox River overlooking Amelia county. On the west is Cumberland County. On the east is Chesterfield County. The county is accessible to rest of the Richmond Virginia Area by the state and interstate highways that go through the county. The area has a rich heritage its citizens are proud of. It's a wonderful place to live.
Agriculture has been important to the area's economy for a long time. The county presently has 195 farms with an average of 220 acres each. The main agricultural products are tobacco, alfalfa, beef, dairy, poultry, soybeans, small grain, and corn. The economy is also transforming into high tech manufacturing. White Oak Semi-conductor is a big area employer with 65 vendors and suppliers. Capital One's credit card division also employs many people in the county. Other major employers are the Powhatan County School Board, the Powhatan Correctional Center, Food Lion, and Colony Construction. Access to US and state highways makes commuting to work anywhere in the Richmond Virginia Area easy.
State highway VA-288 goes through the eastern part of Powhatan County connecting with I-64 which connects to I-95. From there you can go anywhere. US highway 60 goes west to Cumberland County. And it goes east to the 'southside' of Richmond, connects with I-95 and VA-76, and then continues east. US-522 starts at the intersection with US-60 in Powhatan and crosses the James River to Goochland County where it connects with I-64, US-60, and US-33. Powhatan has 2 private airports. The Norfolk-Southern freight line goes through the county moving products in and out of the county.
Powhatan County Amenities
Powhatan County has the usual convenience of amenities such as movie theaters, chain restaurants, and bars. But it has something really unique too; true locally flavored entertainment. The County Fair showcases local products and talent. While the Festival of the Grape attracts 7500 attendees and 30 local wineries sampling out their wines and sharing their knowledge. A $25 tasting ticket gets you a complimentary festival wine glass and unlimited tastings from all 30 Virginia wineries. The annual festival is held at the historic Powhatan Court Square. Local musicians and artisans entertain and sell their wares. Local vendors sell gourmet food. The twelfth annual festival on October 25, 2014 hosted a hat parade, 4 new wineries, and performances by local favorites Southern Tide and The Janitors. A sample of the local vendors last festival included: Sherri's Crab Cakes, Jadean's Smokin' Six O, Grapevine Restaurant, and Granny's Ice Cream. Arts and Crafts vendors included: Arc Angels Creations LLC, All About The Beverage, Bella Donna's Gluten Free Bakery, Clique Jewelry, and Creighton's Creations. Through the festival's Susan Ash Award, the Chamber of Commerce will give $5000 to a local non-profit organization. Fridays Summer Concert Series features local musicians throughout the summer.
Here's the really unique event- The James River Batteau Festival organizes up to 25 Batteaus (or Batteaux) - 55 foot long, 6-8 foot wide flat canoe-like vessels hand-propelled by long poles. They were used from 1700-1900 for transporting tobacco and other cash crops up and down the often shallow and rocky river above the Fall Line. They launch from Lynchburg Va down the James River for an 8 day jaunt, stopping each night for camping and revelry at different locations. Each camp has revelers waiting with a different style of period dress, food (wild meats), and customs. This event has attracted nature lovers, outdoor sports enthusiasts, and history re-enactors. It has gotten to the point where if you're at any of these camps, you're a participant even if you don't get in a boat. The trek ends where there's, of course, a huge receiving crowd. Once the boaters reach the county, they're often too pooped-out to join the festivities. This is a truly unique fusion of history, culture, sport, and entertainment you'll only find in Powhatan County.
Powhatan has both modern and old time shopping. There's the usual Food Lion, Walmart, and Red Barn Grocery stores, along with Sheetz convenience stores, and Dollar General stores. Then Powhatan has the local Henry's Market (founded in 1986) where you can get craft beers, groceries, sundries, and a hot lunch (baby-back ribs with 2 sides, homemade chicken and dumplings, gumbo, and more). Hobby Hill Farms is a on-line outlet featuring Hobby Hill brand items such as seedless preserves, spicy tomato jam, homemade breads and pretzels, and boutique items from other Virginia farms. A really special feature of the County is the numerous Farmer's markets where you can buy fresh quality produce right from the farmers who grew it. Banking is convenient with New Horizon Bank, Wells Fargo Bank, Essex Bank, and Wachovia Bank. Then there's the more personalized touch of the regional Central VA Bank, Citizens and Farmers Bank, and Village Bank.
Powhatan County Schools
Powhatan County Public Schools had an innovative idea. Instead of disciplining students for bringing their smart phones, they enacted the initially controversial "Bring Your Own Device" program. On given days, teachers develop lesson plans transmitted to students' smart phones encouraging students to engage with each other and research information via their devices. Teachers initially had reservations but are saying the program is a huge success. They say in this new age, research is more efficiently accomplished this way. And proficiency on a mobile device and the internet is a job skill (even a requirement). The district bought extra devices for students who don't own one. There are private schools in the county also: Blessed Sacrament- Huguenot School is the only co-ed Catholic School in the Richmond Va Area. There is also the United Methodist Church pre-school. John Tyler Community College campuses are across the county line in Midlothian and Chester. Reynolds Community College is across the river in Goochland. Longwood University and Hampden-Sydney College (founded 1775) both rank within the top 100 schools of the nation and are in neighboring Farmville. Some more of the best schools in the nation are near-by in Richmond: Virginia Commonwealth University and Richmond University.
Powhatan County History
The name, Powhatan, was derived from the Algonquian speaking Native Americans of the Tidewater in 1607. The French Huguenots settled in the county in the early 1700's to escape religious persecution. The crown of England had promised them a settlement near Norfolk but upon arrival the colonial powers told them the land was unhealthy and offered them an abandoned Monacan indian village. (The Monacans had been wiped out from disease and warfare.) Really the English colonists wanted the Huguenots to buffer the Jamestown colony from other Native American Tribes- particularly the Powhatans (the main native enemy of the decimated Monacans). Also the abandoned village was above the Fall Line seeming undesirable because it can't be navigated to by ocean-going ships. Times were rough for the Huguenots at first. Supplies had a hard way reaching them. Many of them perished. But the majority held on and survived. Little did the English colonists know they had given away strategic and fertile ground.
Eventually, the Huguenots developed successful farms and assimilated into English colonial society. Strategically, Powhatan is above the Fall Line of Virginia where the rocky and more elevated Piedmont gives way to the flatter and more sedimentary Tidewater Region. At this point, The James River can't be navigated by ocean-going vessels. The water gets shallow and the current is strong. Because ships had to stop at the Fall Line, settlements there became bustling hubs to distribute ships' cargos. Settlers also learned to utilize the resulting river rapids near the fall line to create power for gristmills, sawmills, and well pumps. Additionally, being above the Fall Line gave protection from enemy ships unable to pass the falls. The Virginia Fall Line crosses through many rivers in Virginia. Busy towns developed at all of these intersections (such as Richmond, Petersburg, Alexandria, and Fredericksburg).
