Bermuda
The "Bermuda 100" is the oldest continually inhabited area of Chesterfield County. The original settlement is located at the Eastern tip of the Bermuda Peninsula where the James and Appomattox Rivers meet. The original Bermuda village was recognized in 1691 by the Virginia General Assembly as an official port because of the deep water port facilities nearby. These ports were used for shipping lumber from Chesterfield County, an important industry for much of Chesterfield's history.
