The History

In the mid-to-late 1600’s, expeditions began to map the area that was then principally a hunting-grounds by Indians, including the Canawhay tribe. In the 1740’s Virginia Colonists began to push into the mountains of Virginia and settled Floyd County. By the 1790’s, English, German, French, Scottish and Irish immigrants settled in what is now Floyd County. Nickel, cobalt, iron,copper, arsenic and soapstone were mined in the county.
Watermills popped up in the area, epitomizing the resourcefulness of residents and the importance of natural resources and living in touch with the land.  In 1831, Floyd County was established and was named for Governor John Floyd. The county thrived in agriculture, and textiles rose and fell. The construction of the Blue Ridge Parkway during the Great Depression brought some needed work to the County, as well as tourism that followed. By the 1970’s, Floyd County was “discovered” by the back-to-the-landers seeking rural refuge. Many of the new residents were artists or artisans who fell in love with the area for many of the same reasons as the original settlers. The abundant natural beauty, unique geography, frequent creeks and rivers, rich artisinal and music traditions, and open opportunities for creative, rural living continue to bring residents and visitors to this stunning area.
