Montpelier is an unincorporated community in Hanover County in the central region of the U.S. state of Virginia. Montpelier is on U.S. Route 33, which was long named as "the Mountain Road" between Richmond and the Blue Ridge Mountains. The community is located midway between Richmond and President James Madison's home "Montpelier", and may have been named for the famous estate, which is a tourist attraction. Montpelier now has a shopping center with a Food Lion, 24-hour fitness, Domino's Pizza, a Subway, and a CVS Pharmacy within minutes of the village limits.

Formerly consisting primarily of farmland and a small business district, today Montpelier is a suburb of Richmond and serves as a bedroom community for many residents who commute to jobs in large metropolitan areas such as Richmond. Professional wrestler Mickie James was born in Montpelier.

The Montpelier Historic District, Oakland, and Sycamore Tavern are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[3]
