FromMoreSet amidst lush, rolling hills, Louisa County was once home to religious dissenters, emancipationists and some of Virginias first families. Its epicenter was Louisa Courthouse, where all the countys residents managed their business affairs. From Patrick Henrys seminal speech for Louisa against tyranny, to a county chief justice too fat to ride horseback, Louisa has a rich and fascinating heritage. Historian and longtime Louisa County resident Pattie G.P. Cooke chronicles the countys coming of age as part of the new United States of America, retaining its small, tightly knit communities while embracing inevitable progress.
