I have really enjoyed this site, but now I'm super excited...I live in Charles City- What a neat find!
Thanks for all the great pictures here!

Historic Site

Although remodeled sometime it the past, the Old Courthouse still stands. I believe this view is of the rear. There is a portico around front. Here's what the historical marker says:

CHARLES CITY C. H.: "In 1702 Charles City County, which then included both sides of James River, was divided; the courthouse here was built about 1730. Here Simcoe's British Cavalry surprised a party of militia, January 8, 1781. Here Grant's Army passed on its way to the river June, 1864."
