Tri-Cities Resource & Relocation Guide


Welcome Welcome to the Tri-Cities! What do you prefer? City sidewalks or wide open spaces? A shopping spree at the mall or combing through charming antique shops? A challenging round of golf or fishing on the river? Fine dining or country cooking? No matter what you choose, you can have it all here in the Tri-Cities, a fast-growing region 25 minutes south of Virginia’s state capital. More and more people are discovering the Tri-Cities for its affordable housing, educational opportunities and strong sense of community in neighborhoods both urban and rural. A newly expanded U.S. Army post at Fort Lee and other major developments have created a major economic impact in the region. The Tri-Cities is named for Petersburg, Colonial Heights and Hopewell, three cities that sprung up along the nearby Appomattox and James rivers. The region also includes Prince George and Dinwiddie counties and portions of Chesterfield and Sussex counties. It’s an exciting time to be a part of this diverse community. A recent $1.2 billion expansion of the U.S. Army base at Fort Lee has turned the military post into an economic engine for the Tri-Cities for the foreseeable future. Fort Lee’s overall economic impact to the region is $2.4 billion a year, or about a seventh of the region’s economy, according to a study released in 2012. Fort Lee accounts for a total annual impact of 28,000 jobs and $2.4 billion in economic output. Fort Lee employs more than 12,700 personnel, including military, Department of Defense civilians, private contractors and other civilians. Fort Lee is largely a training facility – about a third of the Army now trains there. Aerospace giant Rolls-Royce PLC has a large presence in the region at the new Crosspointe factory complex in Prince George County. The first manufacturing facility opened in May 2011 and manufactures discs and associated parts for use in commercial aircraft engines. The 180,000square-foot plant cost $170 million and employs about 150 workers. A second factory was expected to be completed-in late 2013. The 90,000square-foot advanced airfoil machining facility will cost $136 million and create 140 highly-skilled jobs. Also, Rolls-Royce has formed a partnership with universities at the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing or CCAM – a roughly 60,000 square-foot, $12.9 million research facility. CCAM is a research-based collaboration between the University of Virginia, Virginia Tech, Virginia State University and manufacturing companies worldwide. Manufacturers join CCAM as members and guide research - leveraging both university faculty and CCAM scientists in two focus areas: surface engineering and manufacturing systems The research facility has the potential to revolutionize manufacturing. Major global businesses will work there with students and faculty from three of the state’s leading institutions of higher learning to develop new industrial products and processes and bring them to the marketplace at top speed, all in a setting that provides minimum financial risk and maximum economic benefit. 6

Another large corporation – the online retailer – has made a major investment in the region with two large distribution centers. The Amazon Fulfillment Center in Dinwiddie County has 1 million square feet of floor space and ships products ranging from electronics and sports equipment to small kitchen appliances and toys. The Amazon Fulfillment Center in Chester has 1.1 million square feet of floor space and ships packages that range from auto parts and consumer electronics to office supplies and books. has invested about $135 million in the two area facilities. The company, in announcing its arrival to the region, said it planned to employ a total of about 1,350 people. Meanwhile, a recent renaissance of sorts has been taking place in Petersburg where artists and restaurateurs have set up shop in the city’s historic storefronts. Redevelopment in Colonial Heights and Hopewell is creating new opportunities and interest in those cities. In the counties, local governments and citizens continue to work on development strategies that would help preserve rural living spaces.

An overview of the Tri-Cities Region: The region is marked by the Appomattox River and the confluence of the Appomattox and James rivers. American Indians from the Appomattox and Powhatan tribes called this area home for centuries. Shortly after the settlement of Jamestown in 1607, colonists ventured down the Appomattox and James rivers to build new settlements along the banks. These included the Citie of Henricus in what is now Chesterfield County, and Fort Henry, which developed into the

modern-day city of Petersburg. Major fur and Indian trade routes were established along local waterways, and it wasn’t long before the area became a center for tobacco farming and manufacturing, supplying Virginia’s cash crop to the entire globe.

Petersburg The city began as a frontier fort and trading post in 1645 called Fort Henry. The Battle of Petersburg on April 25, 1781, featured about 1,000 southside militia under Gen. Baron von Steuben resisting more than 2,500 British regulars. British Gen. Cornwallis gathered British troops for the Yorktown campaign in Petersburg. Petersburg was incorporated as a city in 1850. By then the city had become a thriving industrial and commercial center with tobacco warehouses, cotton and flour mills and iron foundries. The city’s railroad connections and its ability to provide supplies to the Confederate capital of Richmond made it a key target for Union armies under Gen. Ulysses S. Grant toward the end of the Civil War. For nearly 10 months in 1864 and 1865, Petersburg was under siege by the Union army and was defended by Gen. Robert E. Lee and the Army of Northern Virginia.

Tri-Cities Resource & Relocation Guide


Colonial Heights The earliest people to inhabit the area were members of the Algonquin Indian tribe, who apparently roamed along the Appomattox River. Several areas in present-day Colonial Heights still retain their Indian names. The area was settled by the English in 1620. The name Colonial Heights results from action during the American Revolutionary War. In 1781, the French troops under the Marquis de Lafayette, known as the Colonials, retreated north from Petersburg and set up artillery on the heights overlooking Petersburg and the Appomattox River. The area came to be known as Colonial Heights. The area also became involved in operations during the Civil War. General Robert E. Lee made his headquarters at Violet Bank from June through September during the siege of Petersburg in 1864. The area was first incorporated in 1926 and became an independent city in 1948.

Hopewell The city of Hopewell grew from the outgrowth of old City Point, which was founded in 1613 by Sir Thomas Dale. In 1622, the town was wiped out by Indians. City Point was revived during the Civil War when Gen. Ulysses S. Grant made it a base of operations and supply center for the Union armies. City Point became one of the busiest seaports in the world during this time. In 1911, modern-day Hopewell was born when E.I. du Pont de Nemours Co. built a dynamite factory on the site of Hopewell Farms.

Prince George County The county was established in 1702 and was named in honor of Prince George of Denmark, who was the husband of England’s reigning monarch, Queen Anne. The county was one of the earliest settled regions of Virginia. It was first visited by the English in May of 1607, when Capt. Christopher Newport led a crew of 21 men in search of the best location for their permanent settlement. Prince George County is home of the oldest Episcopalian church still standing and still being used as a house of worship in America.

Dinwiddie County Dinwiddie County was established on May 1, 1752 from Prince George County. The county is named for Robert Dinwiddie, lieutenant governor of Virginia from 1751-1758. The county was the site of several key battles during the Civil War during the Siege of Petersburg. The Battle of Lewis’ Farm, fought along Quaker Road, on March 29, 1865, was the first in a series of attempts by Gen. Ulysses S. Grant’s army to cut Gen. Robert E. Lee’s final supply line. On April 1, 1865, the Union army was able to cut the rail line after

capturing Five Forks at the Battle of Five Forks. The following morning, Grant’s army was able to break through Confederate fortifications in the county. The assault broke Lee’s defensive line around Petersburg and compelled Lee to order the evacuation of Petersburg and Richmond that night.


Progress-Index It’s your world. Read all about it your way.

Chesterfield County The county was founded on May 25, 1749. It was carved from Henrico County. The county was named from the Fourth Earl of Stanhope, England’s famed Lord Chesterfield. The James River borders the county on the northeast and the Appomattox River forms the county’s southern boundary. Chesterfield was first settled in 1611 at the Citie of Henricus, when residents of Jamestown moved upstream to a “convenient, strong, healthie and sweete seate” for a new town after conditions at Jamestown were too harsh. Chesterfield County was the site of the first cultivated tobacco in America at Bermuda Hundred, which also became the first incorporated town in America. In 1619, Falling Creek became the site of the first iron furnace in the New World.

mUseUms After you’ve settled into your new home, you’ll want to take some time to explore the museums and attractions that make the Tri-Cities so significant to American history. Several are located around Downtown Petersburg or within a short drive.

Petersburg National Battlefield Almost one quarter of the entire Civil War was fought around Petersburg as Generals Lee and Grant wrestled for control of the railroads and supply lines to the Confederate capital in Richmond. Petersburg National Battlefield tells the story of the nine and one-half month siege that caused the collapse of Richmond and General Lee’s army. The 2,700 acre park contains a 16-stop driving tour that takes visitors through all four units of the battlefiel: Grant’s Headquarters at City Point (present day Hopewell); the Eastern Front, where the initial assaults and the battles of the Crater and Fort Stedman occurred; the Western Front, where intense fighting continued as Grant’s Army encircled the city; and the Five Forks Battlefield, a battle in which the outcome would eventually lead to the Confederates’ retreat and Lee’s surrender at Appomattox Court House. Each year, about 154,000 visitors come to Petersburg National Battlefield. While the history of the Civil War and the nine-month siege of Petersburg are the primary focus of the park, it also offers much more. From horseback riding and bicycle trails to the increasingly popular geocaching activities, the park can offer residents and visitors alike a place to relax and to learn. Some of the activities that the park offers all year are daily ranger led walks and occasional auto caravan tours. Also throughout the summer on Sundays the park offers Segway tours. The Eastern Front Visitor Center features exhibits and audio-visual programs that introduce the story of the siege and its impact on the course of the Civil War. A highlight of the Eastern Front is the scene of one of the war’s most spectacular events, the Battle of the Crater. In an effort to punch a hole in the Confederate’s defensive fortifications and capture Petersburg, a Union regiment from a coal mining region of Pennsylvania dug a tunnel 510 feet long under a part of Lee’s line. On July 30, 1864 they lit the fuse and 8,000 pounds of gun powder exploded as a prelude to a vicious battle.

pomattox rivers. Overnight, the town and adjacent Appomattox Plantation became one of the busiest ports in the world as hundreds of ships delivered food, clothing and ammunition. While running the war from City Point, General Grant received many notable political and military visitors, including President Abraham Lincoln and General William T. Sherman. The Appomattox Plantation house is staffed year-round and provides an audio-visual program, tours of the house and Grant’s cabin, and self-guided walks around the point.

Western Front Driving Tour This driving tour explores where the fighting took place for the Petersburg and Weldon Railroad and the Union Army’s attempts to sever the South Side rail line. Poplar Grove National Cemetery, the final resting place of over 6,000 Federal soldiers who fell in battles from Petersburg to Lynchburg, is a highlight of the tour.

Five Forks Battlefield By the spring of 1865, the last remaining supply line into Petersburg was the South Side Railroad. On April 1, 22,000 Union troops under Major General Philip H. Sheridan attacked and defeated 10,000 Confederate

Built in 1735 for colonial parishioners, this church was restored in the early 1900s as a memorial to Confederate soldiers.

Tri-Cities Resource & Relocation Guide

fort lee Fort Lee, located in the heart of the Tri-Cities off state Route 36, recently finished a transformation that has change the Army post forever. The Pentagon’s Base Realignment and Closure Act of 2005 brought the news that Fort Lee will more than double in size by 2011, gaining at least 6,500 military personnel and well over 1,000 civilians. Overall, the Fort Lee population - including military, civilian and families - has nearly doubled from about 26,000 people to 40,000. From 2006 to 2011, Fort Lee was awash in construction. There have been 39 major construction projects for a total of 56 buildings and all the projects were completed ahead of time and under budget, according to Army officials. All told, about $1.2 billion was spent on BRAC projects. One of the biggest challenges in the growth of the post though was the Ordnance Campus. The site started out essentially as virgin woodland, Gully said. But within two years it had 50 miles worth of site infrastructure on the site. Now it’s home to one of the largest Army Dining Facilities in the United States and five barracks that each house 624 soldiers. Simply put, Fort Lee has become the logistics center of the Army. For many years, Fort Lee has been home to the quartermaster center and school. Soldiers who came to post for Advanced Individual Training learned Military Occupational Skills ranging from warehouse management to petroleum and water supply to rigging — maintaining and packing parachutes.

But now Fort Lee has become the headquarters to the logistics branch. All logisticians will be trained on post. Nearly a third of all U.S. Army soldiers will be trained at Fort Lee. Two of the major tenets at Fort Lee will be Army Logistics University and the Army Ordnance Center and School . Several military operations hav moved to Fort Lee from other posts, including the Ordinance Center and School from Aberdeen Proving Grounds in Maryland; the Transportation School from Fort Eustis in Newport News; the Air Force Training Center and the Air Force Culinary Training Center from Lackland Air Force Base in Texas and the Defense Contract Management Agency based in Alexandria, Va. All BRAC construction is done, however, some projects that were built were not related to BRAC. For example, a $120 million military hotel is now completed and is one of the largest hotels in Virginia. The 1,000 room, 530,000-square-foot Army lodging facility is one of the biggest construction projects ever in the Tri-Cities. Several attractions and annual events welcome visitors on post during specified times, including the U.S. Army Quartermaster Museum, the U.S. Army Women’s Museum and the Fort Lee Thrift Shop and Homemaker’s

Boutique. The “Fourth at the Fort” Fourth of July celebration is a public event, as are portions of the yearly Culinary Arts Competition on post. The Lee Playhouse, currently under renovation, offers live theater shows and musicals.

Access Civilians visiting Fort Lee must provide a valid driver’s license at the gate.
