Iberian Publishing Company's On-Line Catalog:
Independent City of Emporia


Located in Greensville County. the town was created because of a dispute between the two adjoining villages of Hicksford and Belfield. Benjamin Tillar, a Virginia House Delegate, merged the two communities and named the new town for Emporia, Kansas, the hometown of one of his associates in the Atlantic and Danville Railway system. Although the Virginia Assembly revoked the town's charter in 1888, just one year after its incorporation, the community continued to grow. It was reincorporated in 1892 and became a city by court order in 1967. For Emporia's records, see Greensville County.
