History

In Abingdon, history is not confined to select sites and preserved buildings.

Its all around. When you look at the mountains surrounding town, you think of Daniel Boone walking through the woods or early American pioneers traveling the Great Road across the Blue Ridge Mountains to settle the new frontier.

When you stroll down Main Street, you think about the Civil War soldiers involved in nearby battles who were treated by nurses on the grounds of what is now the elegant Martha Washington Hotel.

Visit the Abingdon Muster Grounds and you'll be able to imagine citizen militia members gathering to go off to fight the British for American independence.
