About the project:

Montgomery County Road Orders

Since 1973, VCTIR historians have transcribed and published the 18th-century transportation-related court records, known as “road orders,” for numerous Virginia counties.  These records constitute the primary evidence for early road development and outline early settlement and transportation corridors in a large portion of Virginia.  This latest proposed volume, “Montgomery County Road Orders 1777-1800,” will be the 26th entry in the Research Council’s Historic Roads of Virginia series.  “Montgomery County Road Orders 1777-1800” will cover the period from the county’s creation from part of Fincastle County in 1777 through the end of the 18th century, when Montgomery was originally a giant county stretching through much of southwest Virginia. This project will have particular application to the cultural-resource research relating to transportation projects in this area, including the improvements to Interstate 81 and the proposed Interstate 73.
