Dog Walking in Spotsylvania County

Spotsylvania (also known as Spotsylvania Courthouse) is the county seat of Spotsylvania County, Virginia. Its original inhabitants were a Siouan-speaking tribe called the Manahoac. Spotsylvania County was established in 1721 and named in Latin for the Lieutenant Governor of Virginia, Alexander Spotswood.

Spotsylvania has a lot of historic ties to the Civil War, with many battles fought in the county, including the Battle of Chancellorsville, Battle of the Wilderness, Battle of Fredericksburg, and Battle of Spotsylvania Court House. This earned Spotsylvania the title “Crossroads of the Civil War.” General Stonewall Jackson was shot and mortally wounded by friendly fire in Spotsylvania County during the Battle of Chancellorsville.

While some parts of the county are still somewhat rural, Spotsylvania County is largely made up of suburban areas. There has been an influx of new residents to Spotsylvania in recent years because of the relatively low cost of living, with many residents commuting to northern Virginia or Washington, D.C. for work.The local urban and community forests are very important to locals, and new housing developments are being built with green spaces for both residents and visitors to enjoy. There are quite a few of these green spaces to explore in the area, many of which are former Civil War battlefields, such as Wilderness Battlefield and Chancellorsville Battlefield.
