A History of Nelson County

Fifty years have passed since this booklet was published. Much has changed in Nelson County since 1965. While reading the entries for each community, the reader will be taken back to the times before the catastrophic event of Hurricane Camille, the coming of Wintergreen Resort and its development, and the integration of the public schools. It was a time when the strength of the county largely resided in the local communities. This 50 page booklet is copied as it was printed in 1965 and may have typographical errors and a few inaccuracies.
