Wytheville VA is an important point on both I-77 and I-81 and lies amidst a Wrong-way concurrency of I-77 and I-81. It is located about halfway between Bristol, TN or Bristol, VA and Roanoke, VA. On the I-77 corridor, it is located about halfway between Charleston, WV and Charlotte, North Carolina. The nearby community of Fort Chiswell is the control city for the northbound traffic on I-77 coming from Charlotte, Statesville, Elkin, and Mount Airy, North Carolina. In the near future, Interstate 74 will go through Wytheville in addition to the two other interstates.
Due to the confluence of I-77, I-81 and several U.S. Highways, and its location in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountain range, Wytheville is known as "The Hub of Southwest Virginia" and "the Crossroads of the Blue Ridge."
From the pioneer days when our nation’s earliest citizens journeyed to the West, to a 20th century First Lady, Wytheville and Wythe County has had a unique role in history.
Founded in 1790, Wythe County VA 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 (the New River and many creeks) 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.
Over the last 200 years, Wytheville’s “great roads” have been a driving force in its progress and attraction. From the days of the western migration, the area’s accessibility, convenience, and range of travel-related businesses have made Wytheville an ideal stop. Today, two federal highways, Interstates 77 & 81, make it a modern-day junction.
The history of the area patterns the history of our nation with many interesting events, legends, and characters along the way. Let your historical visit begin at Wytheville’s Heritage Center at 115 West Spiller Street for an orientation to our two historical museums, the Haller-Gibboney Rock House and Thomas J. Boyd Museums. Medicine, war battles, and First Lady Edith Bolling Wilson are just a few of the topics covered. You can also begin the self-guided Wytheville’s Historic Walking Tour from this location and learn many interesting facts about local history, pre-Civil War to today. Additionally, the African American Heritage Driving Tour takes a closer look at this aspect of history through examples of places where people lived, learned, and worshipped.
Wythe County also has five locations on the Virginia Civil War Trails. These mark the route of Toland’s Raid and offer a beautiful scenic drive between locations.

Chartered in 1778, Abingdon has
long been a center for culture and commerce. The first English
speaking settlement to be incorporated in the watershed of the
Mississippi, Abingdon was the principal distribution point for mail
and supplies on the Great Road to the farthermost wilderness of the
West. Abingdon was truly "the Gateway to America’s Frontier." It
offers great history, charm and romance!
Natural Tunnel, called the "Eighth Wonder of the World" by William Jennings Bryan, has been attracting sightseers to the mountains of southwestern Virginia for more than 100 years. Today it is the focal point of Natural Tunnel State Park, a park which offers visitors not only spectacular sights but also swimming, camping, picnicking, hiking, a visitor center, an amphitheater and interpretive programs.
The creation of Natural Tunnel began more than a million years ago in the early glacial period when groundwater bearing carbonic acid percolated through crevices and slowly dissolved surrounding limestone and dolomite bedrock. Then, what is now Stock Creek was probably diverted underground to continue carving the tunnel slowly over many centuries. The walls of the tunnel show evidence of prehistoric life, and many fossils can be found in the creek bed and on tunnel walls.
Location: Natural Tunnel State Park is in Scott County, approximately 13 miles north of Gate City and 20 miles north of Kingsport, Tenn.. To get there, from I-81, take U.S. 23 North to Gate City (approximately 20 miles). Take State Route 871 and go one mile east to park entrance.
Road State Park was purchased in 1993; the park is approximately
200 acres that lie astride the "Wilderness Road." Wilderness Road was
carved by Daniel Boone in 1775 to open America’s first western
frontier. Most notable in the park are the Karlan Mansion, built in
the 1870s, and Martin's Station, a replica of a fort built there in
1775. Click here to visit the Friends of Wilderness Road's website,
which provides details about the fort.
