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.

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.
