New Northumberland County Website

Our neighborhood is located in Northumberland County, one of most historic counties in Virginia and home to some of the earliest European settlements in the New World.

Northumberland County has upgraded their website and the result is a very attractive, easy-to-use website.  Here’s the link to the website.

Some of the features of the new site are:

  • Tax maps.  We are on maps 12A-1, -2, and -3.
  • Land records.  You can search the land records by name of owner, or, tax map number.
  • Pay property taxes.
  • Board of Supervisors information — names and contact information of supervisors; meeting schedules; meeting agendas and minutes.
  • And . . . lots of other useful and important information for county residents.
