Nottoway, VA

Nottoway is an unincorporated community in Southside Virginia. It is the seat of Nottoway County. The population is around 85.

Nottoway County, despite being a rural county, has some relatively larger population centers. These towns grew when the railroad opened stations. Nottoway, or Nottoway Court House, was bypassed by the railroad, preserving the community as a little courthouse town typical of Virginia in the 1700s and 1800s.


The Nottoway County Courthouse, on Courthouse Road. The courthouse was built in 1843 in the Jeffersonian style.



In front of the courthouse is the Confederate veterans' monument, dedicated in 1893.



Behind the courthouse is the Office of the Commissioner of Revenue. The office was built in 1900 as the county jail.



The Nottoway County Clerk's Office, on Courthouse Road. The office was built in 1843.



The old Nottoway County Library, on Courthouse Road. The library was built in 1941, and was donated to the community by diplomat David K.E. Bruce.



A county office building, on Courthouse Road.



St. Matthews Methodist Church, on Courthouse Road. The church was built in 1886.



Old Brick Presbyterian Church, on Old Nottoway Road. The church was built in 1837.



The Governor William Mann House, on Mann Street. The house was built in 1870. Mann served as Governor of Virginia from 1910 to 1914.



The Cummins House, on Mann Street. The house was built in 1850.



The Dillemuth House, on Mann Street. The house was built in 1880.

Shy town! 85 people? Is this an autonomous community? Oh, come on...
Almost a Fr/Gallic village in France's deepest backyard.

FYI, 36k+ municipalities here in France, and all the freaking administration that goes along, of course.... Gross! Barbaric.
3 times as many as Germany, which is yet more populated (though smaller by land area).

I'm always pissed by these statistics.

The Confederate Veterans Monument took nearly 30 years to be erected, seems rather late for that sort of thing at the time.

Sometimes it takes a generation to pay their respects. Many Confederate (and Union) monuments date back to the late 1800s and early 1900s, when veterans were older and the next generation was at the age when they fought.
