Things to see in Colonial Heights

The rich heritage of Colonial Heights is apparent in the many surviving buildings from past eras. Wander through Chesterfield Highlands Historic District to see the beautiful homes and churches that were planned according to the traditional gridiron pattern introduced to the US by European architects in the 17th century. Visit the storied Violet Bank, a historic streetcar suburb built on the site of a former plantation. Here you can marvel at the second-largest cucumber tree in the world and visit the museum in the original plantation house, a fine example of Federal design with beautiful molded ceilings. Another interesting landmark is the Swift Creek Mill, which dates back to 1663.
