Greene County Virginia

Map of Va: Greene CountyGreene County was formed in 1838 from the western portion of Orange County. Its namesake was General Nathaniel Greene, commander of the Army of the South during the Revolutionary War. Greene County's boundaries have not changed since that time. The only loss of records from the Civil War was the county's first deed book, but many of these deeds were rerecorded. A major disaster struck the courthouse on October 24, 1979 when a gas main ruptured, causing an explosion. The resulting fire destroyed much of the courthouse. Fortunately, quick action by the firemen on the scene saved the records in the vault.
