Experience 350 Years of History In A Day

Visit & Explore The History
of Middlesex County, Virginia

Spend a day here and live through three and a half centuries. In how many places can you do that? Middlesex, where the great waters of the Rappahannock River meet the Chesapeake Bay, was described by a 17th century colonial settler as the place “on which nature has smiled benignly.” So has history.

 

Middlesex is where “rich soil, salubrious climate, beautiful scenery” and attractive rivers and bays brought the colonial settlers who left their marks and legacies. Relive life as Middlesex residents have known it, from its colonial roots through its boatbuilding heyday to the present. With museums in Saluda, Urbanna and Deltaville, Middlesex is a place like no other.
