The trail allows residents and visitors to identify more than 50 sites in Louisa County that unfold the story of our American democracy, focusing on the experiences of Indians, women, and African Americans. The trail is made possible by a grant from the Virginia Tourism Corporation's American Evolution 2019 Commemoration program. We developed this site in proud partnership with Louisa County Parks, Recreation and Tourism and the Louisa County Chamber of Commerce.
We are a community-based organization focused on preserving, protecting and promoting Louisa History in new ways.
Come learn about Louisa's history from costumed interpreters during free, family-friendly monthly events at the Heritage Farm.
Get to know the county's distinctive features and historical figures as you drive back roads or walk town streets.
Open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., the Sargeant Museum is a good place to start exploring our history, from Louisa's first inhabitants to the present.
The County of Louisa was formed from Hanover County in 1742 and named for Princess Louisa, daughter of English King George II and Queen Caroline.
