Description:
Doswell is an unincorporated community in Hanover County in the Central Region of the U.S. state of Virginia. Originally called Hanover Junction, it was located on the Virginia Central Railroad, which later became part of the Chesapeake and Ohio Railroad (C&O) at a crossing of the Richmond, Fredericksburg and Potomac Railroad, a busy north-south route. Both railroads are now owned by CSX Transportation, although the former Virginia Central line is leased to a short-line carrier, Buckingham Branch Railroad. The area near the Doswell train station is a popular train-watching site for railfans.

Formerly consisting primarily of farmland, today Doswell includes many residents who commute to jobs in Richmond.

Kings Dominion, a major amusement park, and Meadow Event Park, home of the Virginia State Fair, are located in the town.

It is the namesake of the Doswelliidae, an extinct family of reptiles, the fossils of which were found nearby.
