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 Peppers Ferry trails. Today, two federal highways, Interstates 77 & 81, bring thousands of visitors each day to experience the charm and beauty of this small southern community.
