Powhatan County is included in the Greater Richmond Region. In May 1777, Powhatan County was created out of land from the eastern portion of Cumberland County between the Appomattox and James rivers. The James River forms the county’s northern border, and the Appomattox River is on the south side. The county is named for the chief of the Powhatan Confederacy of Algonquian speaking Native American tribes. Chief Powhatan was also the father of Pocahontas, whom colonists perceived as friendly. While in captivity, she accepted Christianity and married English settler John Rolfe.
During the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Powhatan became more developed with expansive plantations as the frontier moved west. The county continued to be organized on an agricultural economy until after World War II. Today, Powhatan still has rural areas and historic plantations, but is being developed with suburban residential housing and commerce. Learn more about Powhatan County at their website.
