Middlesex County History

Founded  1673
Seat:  Saluda
Largest town: Urbanna

The area was populated by a loose alliance of tribes known as the Powhatan Confederacy.  
The Nimcock had a village on the river where Urbanna was later developed.

English settlement of the area began around 1640, with the county being officially formed in 1669 from a part of Lancaster County. This settlement pushed the Nimcock upriver.
The county's only incorporated town, Urbanna, was established by the colonial Assembly in 1680.


Middlesex County is located in Virginia's Middle Peninsula region, on the eastern end.  It is bordered by the Rappahannock River, the Chesapeake Bay, the Piankatank River and the Dragon Run Swamp.
