  • 1. Caroline County, Virginia Community Profile Right Place, Right Time, Right Now! LOCATION Caroline County is strategically located in central Virginia along the Interstate 95 corridor roughly midway between the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area and Richmond. The county's 549 square miles consist of relatively level plains and gently rolling countryside, which have developed as home to both productive agriculture and resource-based industry. The interstate and primary highway and railroad network provides excellent access to eastern markets. Caroline County is about 35 miles north of the state capital of Richmond and about 75 miles south of Washington, D.C. Norfolk and the Port of Hampton Roads are approximately 110 miles to the southeast.
