The Southampton Citizens Association serves the Southampton/Stratford Hills community by promoting initiatives that preserve and improve the livability, economic value and welfare of our neighborhoods and valued community resources.
Our stewardship includes the James River, green spaces, roadways, churches, retail centers and recreational facilities. Southampton Citizens Association was formed August 19, 1946 with the intention of securing improvements for this small but growing community in Chesterfield County. At this time Cherokee was the through road. Chippenham did not exist. Telephone service was not available to all homes and much of the water came from water filled granite quarries.
The first official meeting of the SCA was October 14, 1946 and water and sewer service was the main topic at the time. In 1970 this area was annexed as part of Richmond. Today, the SCA continues to be active in area development and city services.
