Mechanicsville, only 6 miles away from Richmond, is a historic area with sites of multiple Civil War battle history and a desirable school district. It offers a quiet, suburban feel and is loved by all of the locals. It also offers more rural living but this area is starting to see more and more new developments arrive. Close to the RIC Airport and easily accessible to main highways makes this a great option for residents. This area is growing and more and more new construction and planned communities are popping up.
