Virginia is covered on the Northeast States List
The county seat is Monterey. Highland County is sometimes known as "Virginia's
Little Switzerland". It was formerd in 1847, from Pendleton and Bath Counties. Because of it's
elevation, it was named Highland. This land of high mountain valleys, sheep and cattle grazing farms and
vast woodlands is known for its pristine scenic beauty and rural charm. It is one of the least populated counties
in the east and boasts one of the highest mean elevations of any county east of the Mississippi River. Originally
settled by Scotch/Irish highlanders and German immigrants, Highland is now an eclectic mix of native farm families
and new residents drawn to the high quality of life.
