If you're looking for a home located in an area with a rich history, consider the Conjurer's Neck subdivision near Colonial Heights.
Artifacts from pre-Clovis and Clovis Indian cultures, the oldest in the North and South American continents were discovered by archeologists in the Conjurer's Neck area in 1993. Residents living near the old Kennon homestead at Conjurer's Neck often speak of the abundance of Indian arrowheads found in the area.
A small group of English colonists, who had settled in the area in 1620, settled in an area where Swift Creek runs into the Appomattox River, which they named Conjurer's Neck. This confluence was formerly the residence of a Native American healer, or "conjurer," who was thought to have cast spells over the waters. The Conjurer's Neck Archeological District was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 2003. Wealthy English aristocrat Richard Kennon began construction of his plantation home in 1685. His brick home is thought by some to be the oldest home in Virginia.
The modern day Conjurer's Neck subdivision is close to Interstates 95, 85 and 295. Shopping and dining are conveniently located nearby, and it's only 5 miles from Fort Lee.
