Not only has Manchester, Virginia, been known as Manatosh and Rocky Ridge, but the area was originally an independent city that was later annexed by Richmond, Virginia in 1901.
Manchester was originally incorporated as a town in 1769, and was named for a city in Manchester, England. The city originally served as the county seat of Chesterfield County in the 1870s. Manchester is considered to be part of the Greater Richmond area. This area is generally divided into four distinct regions that include the West End, East End, North Side, and South Side. This former independent city turned neighborhood is located in the heart of the South Side of Richmond, Virginia. However, since there isn't a single municipal organization considered to be representative of the Greater Richmond area, the boundaries of the sub-regions tend to be a bit vague, causing the Greater Richmond area to extend well beyond the limits of the city, and into several nearby counties.
