DescriptionCharles City County, settled by the English in 1613, is wedged between the James and Chickahominy rivers. From its very beginning the area has been tied to America's history. Benjamin Harrison V, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and presidents William Henry Harrison and John Tyler were born here. Historic plantations border the James River, on or just off scenic SR 5, near the Colonial capitals of Williamsburg and Jamestown and convenient to the later capital, Richmond.
