Days Gone By

The landmarks in Midlothian are plentiful if you are interested about learning the history of the area. To get a real feel for the past, visit the Bellona Arsenal. The arsenal served as a 19th century Army post and three of the original workshops remain standing. A visit to the Bethel Baptist Church should be the next stop on your list. Constructed in 1894, the church, complete with a pitched gabled roof, is accompanied by a cemetery. Lined with the graves of over 500 U.S. soldiers, the cemetery serves as a tribute to those who served the country.

Take a Walk

There is no lack of outdoor activities in and around the Midlothian area. With several parks serving the area, plenty of options are available for the entire family. At Robious Landing Park, access to the James River is easy, allowing locals to kayak, row, and fish. Covering over 102 acres, the park also has walking trails, picnic shelters, and playgrounds. Another large walking trail can be found at Chester Linear Park, located in Chester Village. Previously a railroad, the park brings the beauty to nature to both residents and visitors.

Where it all Began

Midlothian was first settled in the early 1700s by the French Huguenots after it was discovered that coal was abundant on the land. As the place where coal was first commercially mined in the country, Midlothian produced much of the state’s coal during the American Revolution. By the 1800s, the area saw the development of not only railroads, but roads and turnpikes and by the 20th century, the coal mining industry began to decline. As the highway from Richmond began to infiltrate the area, it quickly became a residential community with the construction of neighborhoods and subdivisions.
