NELSON
Nelson County was created in 1807 from Amherst County, and is named for Thomas Nelson, Jr., a signer of the Declaration of Independence, who served as Governor of Virginia in 1781. An earlier Virginia county, also named in his honor, became part of Kentucky when it separated from Virginia in 1792. Nelson County is home to Wintergreen Resort, Swannanoa mansion and is the location of Walton's Mountain made famous by the television show, “The Waltons". It’s home to several wineries, craft breweries, cideries, distilleries, many fruit orchards and Crabtree Falls. Its county seat is Lovingston. On the night of August 19–20, 1969, Nelson County was struck by disastrous flooding caused by Hurricane Camille, which hit the Gulf Coast two days earlier, weakened over land, and stalled on the eastern side of the Blue Ridge Mountains, dumping 27 inches of rain, mainly in a three-hour period. Over five hours, it yielded more than 37 inches, while the previous day had seen a deluge of 5 inches in half an hour, with the ground already saturated. The Blue Ridge Mountains form the northwest boundary of the county; the James River forms the boundary to the southeast. Internally, Nelson consists of the Rockfish, Tye and Piney rivers, along with many known creeks.
