Located just thirty minutes away from the capital of Virginia, Richmond, Doswell is a very rural and remote location and its downtown has just one small store, a few hotels and a gas station. Doswell is home to the Virginia State Fair which is held annually at the end of September. While Doswell is a small town, it has played a significant role in US history.
Once known as Hanover Junction, this village today is called Doswell. In this tiny small town the tracks of two important railroads intersect; the Richmond, Fredericksburg, and Potomac and Virginia Central Railroads. During the famous Civil War campaigns of 1862-1864, Robert E. Lee’s army relied on these railroads for supplies. Just to the east was the Doswell farm where the largest horseracing track in central Virginia was located.
