Bland County History

Bland County was formed in 1861 from Wythe, Tazewell, and Giles counties, with more land being added from Giles County later on.  An act to establish the County of Bland passed the General Assembly of the State of Virginia on March 30, 1861
The county was named after Richard Bland, a leader of Colonial Virginia whose arguments laid the intellectual foundation for freedom and independence from England.


The county is mountainous with small river valleys running through the county.

The North Fork of the Holston River has its head waters in Bland County. [wikipedia.org]
