Great hunting and recreational opportunity while investing too! Wildlife abounds here in this secluded and completely wooded tract.
Here is a great opportunity to invest in a large timber tract while you enjoy the recreation that it can offer. Whether you want to hunt, 4 wheel, hike, camp, shoot, or just hang out for the weekend, this tract can get it all done for you. Located about 3/4 of a mile off the state road, this tract is the last stop down the private lane. Once on the property you will see that the road continues but it is all yours now. The road will take you another 1/4 mile to a nice clearing on high ground that is perfect for that small cabin. This tract is a square 1/2-mile of 5-year-old replanted pines with some mixed hardwoods throughout. In a day a mulcher on a skid steer could have you a couple of miles of trails and some food plot areas to enhance your enjoyment. Wildlife is flourishing on this tract with cropland scattered about and more heavily timbered tracts adjacent. It’s just a matter of time before the first thinning will be paying off resulting in the hunting and maneuvering becoming even better.
Dinwiddie County was formed May 1, 1752, from Prince George County. The county is named for Robert Dinwiddie, Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, 1751–58. The county raised several militia units that would fight in the American Revolution.
Dinwiddie County was the birthplace of Elizabeth (Burwell) Hobbs Keckly, a free black dressmaker who worked for two presidents’ wives: Mrs. Jefferson Davis and later Mary Todd Lincoln. Thomas Day was also a native; he was well known later at Milton, North Carolina, as a free black cabinetmaker. Another native son was Dr. Thomas Stewart, perhaps America’s first free black 18th-century rural physician.
During the Civil War the Battle of Lewis’s Farm was fought along Quaker Road [Rt. 660]. It took place on March 29, 1865. This was the first in several attempts by Union General Ulysses S. Grant to cut Robert E. Lee’s final supply line—the Southside Railroad—in the spring of 1865. Here the Union forces led by Brig. Gen. Joshua L. Chamberlain engaged Confederates under Maj. Gen. Bushrod R. Johnson. After sharp fighting, the Union troops entrenched nearby along the Boydton Plank Road, and Johnson withdrew to his lines at White Oak Road. The Union army cut the rail line four days later, after capturing Five Forks on April 1, 1865, at the Battle of Five Forks. Several other engagements were fought in Dinwiddie County, including the Battle of Dinwiddie Court House, Battle of Sutherland’s Station, and Battle of White Oak Road.
