In the 1700s, coal miners founded the community of Midlothian and coal was the foundation of the area’s economy until the end of mining in the late 1800s. When mining ceased, the town’s rail access transformed the community into a commuter town and for many decades it sat in the quiet countryside as a friendly little southern village. Today, Midlothian is large and has a more suburban atmosphere, though on its back roads you can still find remnants of its small-town country charm. In addition to a long, rich history, Midlothian also offers access to significant transportation routes making it very convenient for commuters. The Powhite Parkway, Route 288, Route 60 and Route 360 are all easily accessible and make travel to much of the Richmond Metro Area a breeze.
Also in proximity to Midlothian are Westcreek’s Capital One campus, Short Pump, and Downtown. Henrico County and the City of Richmond are only minutes away. Points of interest in Midlothian include the forty-four-acre preserve that was formerly one of the nation’s first industrial sites. This Mid-Lothian Mines Park features winding forest trails and five exhibits showcasing the railroad and mining histories of the area. Westchester Commons is another Midlothian attraction. This major shopping destination encompasses several service providers, a gym, locally-owned, and national retailers. Another of Midlothian’s must visit places is The Boathouse at Sunday Park, a waterfront restaurant overlooking Swift Creek reservoir.
In addition to these and other services, amenities, and attractions, Midlothian real estate is also remarkable. The village encompasses several lovely neighborhoods and subdivisions, including Archway, Avon Park, Brandermill, Cambria Cove, Deer Meadow, Edgewater At The Reservoir, Founders Bridge, Harbour Green, James River West, Kingswood, Laurel Trail, Moss Creek, North Settlers Landing, Old Buckingham Forest, Pocoshock Heights, Queenspark, River Oaks, Shenandoah Hills, Tarrington, Villas at Dogwood, and Water Pointe Condo, to name a few.
