Dinwiddie County is centrally located in Virginia in which the heart of Dinwiddie is approximately 40 miles south of the state capital of Richmond. Its rich history abounds throughout 507 square miles of blended suburban and rural communities, positioning itself as a great place to live, learn, and call home.
Dinwiddie County was established on May 1, 1752, and is governed by a five member Board of Supervisors and a County Administrator. Its government shares a mutually supportive and symbiotic relationship with the Dinwiddie County School Board, making our school system a place that nurtures, encourages, and helps our students succeed.
