Wythe County, Virginia

Formed from Montgomery Co in 1790, Wythe County was named after George Wythe, the first Virginian Signer of the Declaration of Independence.  
Prior to Wythe County's creation, what is now the Wythe County community of Austinville served as the county seat for Fincastle County, an extinct Virginia county whose borders stretched from Roanoke, Virginia, to the Mississippi River – a county roughly the size of half the State of Texas.

The Battle of Cove Mountain was fought in this county during the Civil War.
