The Virginia Handbook
by Blair Howard, Mary Burnham, & W. Burnham Jr. (Hunter Publishing)
Nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Montgomery County offers the best of two worlds. The county is a combination of urban redevelopment, small historic communities and the outdoor world of the mountains and forests. Established in 1776 and named for General Richard Montgomery, who served in the first Virginia regiment commanded by George Washington during the French and Indian War, Montgomery County once covered an area of more than 12,000 square miles.
Today, Montgomery County combines a spirit of history with modern technology. A small town atmosphere and the rolling hills and deep green valleys highlight a county community of a half-dozen or so towns and villages. This eTrail provides detailed information on sights, events, entertainment, shopping, dining, accommodations, and transportation in this area of Virginia.
