Dinwiddie County lies within 150 miles of three of the nation's major market and population centers. The area's excellent highway, rail, and air networks make the Washington D.C., Richmond, and Norfolk markets easily accessible.  

Dinwiddie's location allows it to offer a low cost of living with a high quality of life. Families and businesses alike are attracted to this up-and-coming area. Forward thinking, a growing industrial sector, strong retail trade and an established agri-business presence characterize the local economy.

Dinwiddie County was established May 1, 1752 from Prince George County. The county is named for Robert Dinwiddie, Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, 1751-58. During the Civil War the Quaker Road [Rt. 660] Engagement occurred on 29 March 1865, this was the first in a series of attempts by Grant's army to cut Lee's final supply line -- the South Side Railroad -- in spring 1865. Here at the Lewis farm, Union forces led by Brig. Gen. Joshua L. Chamberlain engaged Confederates under Maj. Gen. Bushrod R. Johnson. After sharp fighting, the Union troops entrenched nearby along the Boydton Plank Road and Johnson withdrew to his lines at White Oak Road. The Union army cut the rail line four days later, after capturing Five Forks on 1 April, 1865.
