Rich soil, vast timber and religion brought most of the earliest settlers to what would become Dinwiddie County. Those qualities still play a big part in the lives of most residents here today. Local historian Ronald R. Seagrave presents the story of this heritage, focusing on the people who have made the county a comfortable place to raise a family--the strength and creativity of those who have lived on the farms and in the villages. Discover the whole span of Dinwiddie County's past, from simple beginnings and early development, through the Civil War, Reconstruction and growth and on to world wars, modern times and a glimpse of the present.
