About this title


On October 12, 1758, a newly appointed lieutenant governor of Virginia approved a set of bills passed by the colony’s legislature, and the town of Stephens City, originally named Stephensburgh, was born. As the town grew over the next century and a half, its inhabitants participated in events of national significance, including the French and Indian War, the American Revolution, and the Civil War, when the town was almost burned by Union forces. Throughout its history, the town has had a reputation for labor, industry, thrift, and the overland travel and vehicle traffic associated with the modern U.S. Route 11 corridor. Where 150 years ago the town was famous for producing high-quality freight wagons, it is today a growing suburban community with residents who commute to work in the surrounding region.

About the Author:

Drawing on the rich collection of historical photographs, paintings, drawings, and maps of the town, authors Linden A. Fravel and Byron C. Smith, members of the community’s historical society, reveal the colorful story of a town and its people from the earliest days in the 1700s to the beginning of the 21st century.
