About Tappahannock, VA and Bon Secours Mercy Health

Our practice is located close to The Rappahannock River - a boater's paradise. The school system is accredited and covers K-12. We also have private schools close in the area. Tappahannock is a small neighborhood town. Very close knit and friendly. There is a farmers market in the summer months in the middle of town. There is a Marina for boating and lots of other small town attractions. 

Tappahannock is the oldest town in Essex County, Virginia. The population was 2,375 at the 2010 census, up from 2,068 at the 2000 census. Located on the Rappahannock River, Tappahannock is the county seat of Essex County.   Tappahannock is older than Richmond , Fredericksburg and even Williamsburg .  Captain John Smith landed here in 1608.   It was a Native American village and so he gave both the river and the village Native American names. The river became the Rappahannock, which meant "rise and fall" of water, and the village, set upon it, became Tappahannock, which means "town on the rise and fall of water". 

Tappahannock is a proud community, supported by over 400 years of history and dedicated to maintaining its attractive and safe environment. Cradled on the shore of the Rappahannock River, it is strategically placed at the crossroads of Central and Tidewater Virginia. The Town hosts world class medical services, modern infrastructure and provides opportunities to live, work and recreate where tradition meets the future. We celebrate and embrace a diverse, unified, and involved community. The Tappahannock experience brings you back for life.

We're 45 miles from Richmond, the capital of the Commonwealth of Virginia and 101 miles south of Washington DC.
