Diamond Hill is located in south-central Virginia in the heart of the historic town of Charlotte Court House, only a 1.5-hour scenic drive from Richmond.
Nearby attractions include the historic Charlotte Courthouse and Museum. Patrick Henry gave his famous “Liberty or Death” speech at the Courthouse two days before he famously delivered it in Richmond, Virginia. The central courthouse area is a source of pride for those who work and live in Charlotte County. Many of the buildings represent architecture from the 1800s, including the Thomas Jefferson designed-Charlotte Courthouse building – this is the only Jefferson-designed court house still in existence.
Diamond Hill is also near Green Front Furniture Stores, Hampden-Sydney College, Longwood University, Red Hill Patrick Henry National Memorial, the Confederacy Museum, and the famous Appomattox Courthouse National Historic Park, where General Robert E. Lee surrendered his troops, ending the American Civil War and reuniting the nation. There are also numerous historical civil war sites and National Register of Historic Places in surrounding areas.
