About the Museum

Chesterfield County Museum is a replica of the 1750 Courthouse and features 400 years of the county’s history, a reproduction of a general store and exhibits on Native American culture, early English settlements, the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, and the first iron and coal mines in North America. View the changing exhibit space at the Museum. 

A stroll around the museum complex enables visitors to see the 1917 courthouse, monuments to Baptist preachers, Confederate soldiers, and the Chesterfield County Veterans Memorial Wall and Fallen Officer marker. A rotating exhibit space features different displays throughout the year. All tours begin at the museum. 

Lee's Retreat marker, a Civil War Trails sign, describes the April 1865 retreat from Petersburg through the county by Lee’s Army.
