Midlothian was founded over 300 years ago as a coal town, it is now a suburban community located in the heart of Chesterfield County. It is just west of Richmond, Virginia and south of the James River. It was named for the early 18th-century coal mining enterprises of the Wooldridge brothers. They called their new venture the Mid-Lothian Mining and Manufacturing Company, and employed free and enslaved people to do the deadly work of digging underground. Midlothian is the site of the first commercially-mined coal in the Colony of Virginia.
The mine owners began to export the commodity from the region in the 1730s. Midlothian-area coal heated the U.S. White House for President Thomas Jefferson. Today the 44 acres have been turned into Mid-Lothian Mines Park. Complete with trails, a lake and even an amphitheater; there is something for everyone.
Midlothian now extends many miles beyond the original village area. Residential neighborhoods developed near Midlothian, including the large Salisbury community and the planned developments of Brandermill and Woodlake are still sought after areas to live. Highways make the commute to surrounding areas very convenient. For this reason, Midlothian is one of the region’s fastest growing communities. Learn more by visiting the Midlothian website.
