The history of America is closely tied to that of Virginia, particularly during the Colonial period, Jamestown founded in 1607, was the first permanent English settlement in North America and slavery was introduced there in 1619. The state is called the “Mother of Presidents” because eight U.S. presidents were born there.

The climate of Virginia becomes increasingly warmer and more humid farther south and east.Seasonal extremes vary from average lows of 26 °F (−3 °C) in January to average highs of 86 °F (30 °C) in July. The Atlantic ocean has a strong effect on eastern and southeastern coastal areas of the state.

Virginia is divided into 95 counties and 39 independent cities, which both operate the same way since independent cities are considered to be County-equivalent. This method of treating cities and counties equally is unique to Virginia.


Fairfax County is the most populous locality in Virginia, with over one million residents.  Virginia's economy is balanced, with diverse sources of income, including government and military, farming, and business. Virginia has 4.1 million civilian workers, and one-third of the jobs are in the Service Sector. The unemployment rate was 3% as of April 2024. Technology became the state's highest-grossing export in 2023, surpassing its traditional top exports of coal and tobacco combined.

Providing horse power in the fields and transportation for goods and people, horses were the backbone of the first Virginia Colonies. Today, the role of horses has changed dramatically, yet horses are still a vital economic factor. Some 700 equine events are held in Virginia each year, attracting over 800,000 participants and spectators who spend more than $167 million at these events. Horse owners spend $505 million in annual expenses and support approximately 20,000 jobs statewide.

Middleburg, Loudoun County, Virginia

HUNTLAND, ca. 1834, is one of the most remarkable Hunt Country Estates. Dr. Betsee Parker’s keen interest in historic preservation as well as her love of the countryside surrounding Middleburg prompted her to take on the biggest preservation project of her life: restoring Huntland to its 1915 grandeur. In 2007, when Dr. Parker purchased Huntland, it was in serious disrepair and uninhabitable. After Dr. Parker’s extensive and meticulous research and after years of work using old world craftsmanship, Huntland is once again the exquisite estate as in the early 1900’s, when owned by Joseph Thomas. Sited on 129 beautifully landscaped and fenced acres of verdant pastures and fields, Huntland is also a working farm. Located in the Piedmont Hunt Territory, Huntland has hosted many hunt meets, hunt breakfasts, hunt balls, charity events, and dignitaries including several Presidents. Wanting to protect this estate for future generations, Dr. Parker placed Huntland into a perpetual conservation and open-space easement with The Virginia Outdoors Foundation. Huntland is also registered as a Virginia Historic Landmark and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2013. Originally named New Lisbon, the 2-story center section of the home dates to 1834 and was built and owned by William Benton. In the early 1800’s Benton was in the employ of President James Monroe who hired him to be the overseer of his Aldie farm of Oak Hill. After observing Benton’s work ethic and attention to detail he also put him in charge of overseeing the building of the manor house of Oak Hill. Benton went on to become a prominent builder in the Middleburg area, and his descendants remained at New Lisbon until 1895.
