Countys und Städte von Virginia, nach Gründungsjahr

Der US-Bundesstaat Virginia ist in 95 Countys unterteilt, hinzu kommen 39 Unabhängige Städte (independent cities), die zugleich Stadt und County sind. Die Countys des 1788 gegründeten Bundesstaates sind vergleichsweise kleinräumig. Damit war es auch zur Gründungszeit möglich, in einem Tag zum County-Seat (Hauptort) und zurück zu reisen.
