The City of Hopewell is located 24 miles southeast of Virginia’s capital of Richmond and readily accessible by both I-295 and I-95. Washington, D.C. is 132 miles to the north and the Port of Hampton Roads is 75 miles to the southeast. Consisting of 11 square miles, Hopewell is located at the confluence of the Appomattox and James rivers.
City Point, the oldest part of Hopewell, was founded in 1613 by Sir Thomas Dale. This tiny colonial village saw the Revolutionary War fought on its banks. From June 1864-April 1865, General Ulysses S. Grant directed the 10-month Siege of Petersburg from the grounds of Appomattox Plantation at City Point. During this period, City Point served as a supply center for 100,000 Union soldiers.
