Violet Bank

The first recorded settlement in Colonial Heights was by Thomas Shore in 1775. He built his mansion on 144 acres and called it Violet Bank. While the original main building was destroyed by fire, this remaining structure, dated to 1815, is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a registered Virginia Historic Landmark.  Learn more about Violet Bank at the link below.
