               Botetourt County, Virginia

In 1770, Botetourt County extended to the Mississippi River and included the
future site of Chicago on the southern shores of Lake Michigan, the entire
state of Kentucky, most of Indiana and Illinois, and huge portions of Ohio and
West Virginia.

Botetourt County lies at the southern end of the Valley of Virginia.  Fincastle, pop 359, remains the county seat. The
population is divided between traditional small towns and farms and rapidly expanding suburbs of the City of Roanoke.
The industrial base is centered on precision manufacturing, service/distribution centers and communications.

Our Daleville office is centrally located near the I-81 and US 220 interchange to serve the Roanoke metropolitan area
as well as Botetourt County.

Alleghany County, pop. 16,250 is at the northernmost part of the Roanoke Region.  The county seat is Covington.  
Alleghany was estabilished in 1822 from parts of Botetourt, Bath, and Monroe Counties.  Alleghany is named for the
mountains in which it is located.  I-64 and Route 220 are major roads in and out of Alleghany County. Our Alleghany
Office is located in the city of Covington off of Locust Street, one block from the Alleghany County Courthouse.
