Chester was a rural village for much of the 20th century. A two-lane road meandered from the Courthouse to Enon and on to Hopewell, with timber and small farm plots abutting what was almost a country lane, and it wasn’t until 1990 that the final section, through the Chester village itself, was widened to its current five lanes.
Enon native Jessica Babinski was recently named 2010 National Association of Women Business Owner (NAWBO) Charlotte, N.C., Rising Star of the Year, according to a press release.
Each year, Chesterfield County honors local companies that contribute to the county’s economy and its citizens through the annual First Choice Business Awards, according to a county press release. This year’s winners were announced at the annual Celebrate Chesterfield Business! event on May 19.
Recently, a handful of longtime members of the Chester Civitans reflected on the good times they had during the early years caring for and maintaining Camp Baker, a full-service, handicap-equipped retreat facility located on 22 wooded acres perched on a cliff overlooking the mouth of Swift Creek on Beach Road. The civic organization celebrated its 45th year with a dinner meeting held in the dining hall at Camp Baker last Tuesday.
