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 in modern times.Montpelier now has a Foodlion shopping center, 24 hour fitness, Dominos Pizza, and a Subway Restaurant.

Formerly consisting primarily of farmland and a small business district, today Montpelier 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 Montpeiler.

The Montpelier Historic District, Oakland, and Sycamore Tavern are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.[2]
