Virginia is covered on the Northeast States List
Botetourt County was established
in 1770 from Augusta County. The county
is named for Norborne
Baron de Botetourt, more commonly know as Lord
Botetourt, (1718-1770), who was a
popular governor of the Virginia
Colony from 1768 to 1770, when he
died suddenly while in office.
In the 1770s and 1780s, when
Virginia claimed most of the Northwest
Territory which would later form all or part of six states, the land was
divided between Botetourt and Augusta
Botetourt County is a part of the Roanoke
Metropolitan Statistical Area, and
the southern parts of the county have
become increasingly suburban in recent decades. Much of the area's former
farmland and orchards have been developed
into residential subdivisions and businesses.
