Botetourt County History

“Botetourt County, founded in 1770, is historically unique. It was initially formed from Augusta County and it derived its name from Lord Botetourt, who was the Governor of Virginia. After the Revolutionary War, the County’s jurisdiction was extended to the Mississippi River, encompassing what is now West Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, and part of Illinois and Wisconsin.”
