Goochland

The community of Goochland, also known as Goochland Courthouse, is the county seat of Goochland County. Goochland County was formed in 1728 and named after Sir William Gooch, the royal lieutenant governor of the colony of Virginia. The county originally spanned all the way to the Blue Ridge Mountains until the creation of Albemarle and Cumberland counties reduced it to its current size in 1749. As a rural county, Goochland homes are known for their peaceful setting and country charm.

At the center of Goochland is the county courthouse, built in 1826 by Dabney Cosby, a mason who had worked for Thomas Jefferson at the University of Virginia. Other historic buildings in the square include a stone jail built in 1848 and the original clerk’s office. Goochland County Court Square was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1970.

While the area is rich in history, many of the Goochland homes for sale are more recent constructions. Goochland has become popular because of its close proximity to Richmond and US Interstates 64 and 95. Many historic Goochland homes date back to before the Civil War, like Bolling Hall, Clover Forest, and Elk Hill. Many of these historic estates are still private residences today.
