Middlesex County, Virginia is full of rich history that goes back through the 19th century- and beyond. The county is comprised of several populated places throughout its 211 square mile area, however there are three towns that seem to be more well known to those visiting the area: Urbanna, Deltaville, and Saluda.

Middlesex County Museum has many exhibits and articles that cover the history of all of the designated areas of the county. We invite you to browse them here on our internet archives or in person, here at the museum.
