Madpeper Blessing in Virginia

Host Stefani Joosten says:

Madison County has been a crossroads of history for over 11,000 years. Paleo-Indians, the Royal Governor Alexander Spottswood and the Knights of the Golden Horseshoe, as well as Civil War Generals Stonewall Jackson and J. E. B. Stuart along with their men have all been visitors to Madison County. Trails and early roads led through the Piedmont area of Madison and up into the Blue Ridge Mountains, enabling 18th and 19th century travelers to enter the Shenandoah Valley. Early settlers included German, English and Scots/Irish families in the 18th century. Descendants of these families still live in Madison.

The first settlers came into the area that would become Culpeper County in the early 1700s. Spotsylvania County, created in 1721, encompassed all lands west to the Blue Ridge Mountains and was eventually divided into what are now Orange, Culpeper, Madison and Rappahannock Counties. Culpeper County was established in 1749.
