- Mechanicsville VA Homes For Sale -
Mechanicsville VA is located on the northern and eastern sections of the City in Hanover County. It is accessed via Route 360 (Mechanicsville Turnpike) and Route 295.
What is considered to be traditional 'Old Town' Mechanicsville is the just south of 295 along Route 360, although the greater Mechanicsville area is far larger and comprises areas far to the west approaching 95, sometimes referred to as 'Atlee.'
Several Civil War battles were fought throughout the area and the names of the schools in Mechanicsville reflect this history. Lee-Davis High School and Battlefield Elementary are examples of the Civil War influence.
Mechancisville is popular as an alternative to the expensive homes in Western Henrico (Glen Allen and Short Pump) as housing tends to be slightly more affordable in the area. With excellent access to much of the eastern waterways of VA (via 360 and 295/64), many in Mechanicsville own vacation property in the counties along the Chesapeake Bay.
