Short Pump, Virginia Details
In 1815, Revolutionary War veteran Robert Hyde Saunders built a tavern with an laughably short handled water pump under the porch. Travelers between Richmond and Charlottesville found this as hilarious as the locals did, eventually renaming the town in honor of the pump. Famous personalities like Thomas Jefferson, the Earl Cornwallis, the Marquis de Lafayette, General Peter Muhlenberg, and Stonewall Jackson were all recorded visitors.

Lorrie M., Satisfied Client
I happened to stumble over Keyrenter Property Management after being jostled around by multiple property management companies. Not being from Richmond made finding a home even more difficult and Keyrenter was amazing in this process. The communication is great and Calvin and his team have been more than accommodating to my family and I. I would give this 10 stars if I could. Highly recommended.
