With over 971 square miles, Augusta County is the second largest county in Virginia. The county used to be considerably larger with an unfixed border to the west, supposedly extending to the Pacific Ocean. After years of land reductions, Augusta County finally settled on its final size in 1790. Historically, the county served as the breadbasket of the Confederacy and the site of the Battle of Piedmont, one of the bloodiest battles in the Civil War.
The interesting history of Augusta coupled with its amazing attractions make it a great place to live and to visit. From a drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway, a hike in one of its national parks, or an exploration of its Grand Caverns, Augusta is very memorable. One of the most incredible attractions is the Natural Chimneys, natural limestone formations which tower 120 feet above ground. Augusta also offers a wide variety of vineyards, farms, and historical inns to visit.
