Coal mining was the foundation of Midlothian, Virginia’s economy until the late 1800s when mining in the area ended. In fact, the community was founded by coal miners in the 1700s. Once mining ceased to be the village's primary economic force, it was the community’s rail access that ushered in transformation making it a vibrant commuter town. It remained a quiet countryside village for many decades but in recent years has grown to become a large suburban community with much to offer prospective homebuyers in all seasons of life. Its rich heritage, long history, and delightful small-town country charm are still evident on its back roads while easy access to major highways makes accessing big-city services, amenities, and attractions a breeze. All easily accessible are Route 288, Route 150, and the Powhite Parkway.
Just thirty minutes from Midlothian are Henrico County and the City of Richmond, while Short Pump, Westcreek’s Capital One campus, and downtown are also nearby. Area attractions include Mid-Lothian Mines Park, a forty-four-acre preserve commemorating one of the country’s first industrial sites. The park encompasses five exhibits honoring the mining and railroad histories of the region, and winding, scenic forest trails to enjoy the area's natural beauty. Another noteworthy attraction in Midlothian is Westchester Commons. This significant shopping center is home to national retailers, locally-owned businesses, a gym, and multiple service providers. Moreover, the waterfront Boathouse at Sunday Park is a must-see Midlothian destination. This outstanding restaurant has excellent food and lovely views of the Swift Creek reservoir.
