Alleghany County Virginia

Map of Va: Alleghany CountyAlleghany County was formed from Bath, Botetourt and Monroe (W.Va.) counties in 1822 and named for the mountain chain which runs through the region. On the north it borders Bath County; on the east, Rockbridge; Botetourt on the southeast, and to the south, Craig (Botetourt prior to 1851). Alleghany's western boundary was with Monroe until a portion was transferred to Greenbrier in 1827. Between 1842 and 1866 a number of minor border adjustments were made with Bath, Craig, and Monroe counties.
