Incredible building site in an established location!
What a great opportunity! This property is close to everything with enough acreage to still have that country feel. It is close to I95 and Southside Regional Hospital. With 5 acres it would be a perfect homesite with plenty of room for horses and other recreational activities.
Prince George County is in Tri-Cities area of the Greater Richmond Region. When settled during the colonial era, this area was known as Southside, believed to attract entrepreneurial men who were not from families as established as those who first settled along the James River.
Prince George County was formed in 1703 in the Virginia Colony from the portion of Charles City County that was south of the James River. It was named in honor of Prince George of Denmark, husband of Anne, Queen of Great Britain.
In 1619, “Charles Cittie” [sic] was one of four “boroughs” or “incorporations” created by the Virginia Company. The first Charles City County courthouses were located along the James River at Westover Plantation on the north side and City Point on the south side. The Virginia Company lost its charter in 1624, and Virginia became a royal colony. Charles City Shire was formed in 1634 in the Virginia Colony by order of Charles I, King of England. It was named as Charles City County in 1643.
Charles Cittie, Charles City Shire, and Charles City County all extended to both sides of the James River, which was the major transportation thoroughfare of the Virginia Colony throughout the 17th century. The original central city of Charles City County was Charles City Point, which was in an area south of the James River at the confluence of the Appomattox River. The name was later shortened to City Point.
In 1703, all of the original area of Charles City County south of the James River was severed to form Prince George County. As population increased, portions were divided and organized as several additional counties. City Point became an incorporated town in Prince George County.
