Wytheville, Virginia…There’s Only One You can search the world over and not find another town with the name of Wytheville. But, the name is just the beginning of the unique experiences in this beautiful small town in Southwest Virginia. Wytheville (pronounced WITH-vill) was founded in 1792 as Evansham on 100 acres of land. Named for the first signer of the Declaration of Independence for Virginia – George Wythe, it was selected as the county seat of Wythe County (1790). At the time, it was the junction of two great western roads, the Ingles Ferry and the

E. Lee Trinkle Regional Visitor Center

Peppers Ferry trails. Today, two federal highways, Interstates 77 & 81, bring tens of thousands of travelers daily to experience the charm and beauty of this southern community. This guide contains information regarding attractions, lodging and dining facilities, history, entertainment, events, and outdoor recreation. If you need additional information, please feel free to contact the Wytheville Convention & Visitors Bureau directly. It is our goal to make your planning simple and your visit memorable.

HISTORICAL ATTRACTIONS

Reed Creek Mill Founded in 1790, Wythe County was named for the first signer of the Declaration of Independence for Virginia – George Wythe. Early settlement can be credited to the access to water and the abundance of natural resources, including lead. One hundred acres was selected as the county seat in 1792 and Evansham, now Wytheville, became the central town.

Overlooking the New River, the Historic Shot Tower was built to make ammunition for the firearms of the early settlers. Lead from the Austinville Mines was melted in a kettle atop the 75-foot tower and poured through a sieve, falling through the tower and an additional 75-foot shaft beneath the tower into a kettle of water. A nearby monument honors native son Stephen F. Austin who would later be known as the “Father of Texas”.

Throughout Wytheville and Wythe County, a variety of historic properties still stand offering a glimpse into the past. Five locations on the Virginia Civil War Trails mark the route of Toland’s Raid and offer a beautiful scenic drive. In neighboring Bland County, Wolf Creek Indian Village & Museum has meticulously reconstructed wigwams to match the layout of an excavation dating to 1215 A.D. Guides demonstrate living skills through the use of handmade replicas of tools and containers, hides, and various crafts.

Stephen Austin Memorial

Wytheville Training School The school was constructed in 1882 for African American children and was in operation until 1952. Exhibits feature photos, stories, and memorabilia that tell a history of African American education in Wytheville. The Wytheville Training School was built on land where a Freedmen’s school once stood, shortly after the freedom of the slaves between 1865 and 66. Sometime between 1880 and 1882, the Freedmen’s school was razed and a new church and school, as they appear today were erected. In 1883, an agreement was made between the Evansham (now Wytheville) School District and the trustees of the Franklin Street Methodist Episcopal (M.E.) Church to buy the school. The deed outlined an arrangement by which the M. E. Church was given the privilege to use the school building for religious worship on the Sabbath and for prayer meetings and funerals. They could also use the school for festivals and social meetings as long as such functions did not interfere with the school functions. The school was used as a church until the new church building was constructed in 1886.

CRYSTAL SPRINGS

Nestled in the rolling foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Wytheville is home to countless outdoor recreation opportunities! With 1,800 acres of town-owned property, Crystal Springs Recreation Area is just three miles from Downtown Wytheville. The recreation area is surrounded by the 7500-acre Big Survey Wildlife Management Area (managed by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries.) The thirteen miles of hiking and mountain biking trails range in difficulty from beginner to advanced. The newly built Terrain Park gives the intermediate to experienced mountain biker a fun place to practice on balance beams, teeter totters, rock gardens, log crossings, and other obstacles. There is a lot of history tucked away in the mountains that make up Crystal Springs. Prior to the Town of Wytheville purchasing the property, families farmed and logged the land. Piles

BIG SURVEY


CRYSTAL SPRINGS of rocks that were cleared from the fields by farmers still stand along Woodpecker Run trail as testament to how difficult farming in the mountains could be. The Short Cut trail and the southern portion of the Boundary trail follow an old wagon road that crossed Lick Mountain. Stories passed through the generations tell of moonshiners using this road to move their product out of the sight of law enforcement. In the 1930’s, the Town of Wytheville purchased the land to preserve the watershed, which flowed to the town, and to build a water reservoir. The reservoir remains and is approximately 60 square feet and 8 feet deep, although years of erosion have filled it with sediment. Hike the Crystal Springs Loop trail to see the remnants of the reservoir. Along the Waterline trail you can see the sections of the water pipe that carried water from the reservoir down the valley. Evidence of the past is scattered all throughout Crystal Springs, but you will have to look closely as it is now camouflaged by mother nature.
