Chesterfield County is one of the largest counties in the Greater Richmond area, stretching from around Rt. 150 (Chippenham Parkway) north to past Rt. 288 as far south as Colonial Heights; from past I-95 east as far west as Amelia. Due to its location south of the James River, Chesterfield is well known to Richmond area residents as "Southside". The county was established in 1749, and has a history of mining with its flag including "a picture of a coal miner leaning on his pick under a pine tree with a flowing river at his feet."
