Although the Seven Pines National Cemetery is located on the 1862 battlefield of the same name, most of the nearly 1,400 Union soldiers buried here were moved from graves at Savage’s Station and other locations within a four-mile radius of the cemetery. The Henrico County cemetery was established on June 27, 1866; the frame superintendent’s lodge built that year was replaced in 1874 by one in the Second Empire style from a design by Quartermaster General Montgomery C. Meigs. Seven Pines National Cemetery preserves part of the battlefield on which Gen. Robert E. Lee took command of the Army of Northern Virginia on June 1, 1862.  It was listed in the registers under the Civil War-Era National Cemeteries Multiple Property Document (MPD).

Many properties listed in the registers are private dwellings and are not open to the public, however many are visible from the public right-of-way. Please be respectful of owner privacy.
