Celebrating Stafford County’s 350th Anniversary with a Commemorative Blackinton Badge
Stafford County was established in 1664. In this historic year Stafford County became one of the first counties in Colonial Virginia to appoint a sheriff. The rich history of Stafford County spans back to many important events and travelers. From Pocahontas and Captain John Smith, to George Washington and his famous fabled “chopping of the cherry tree,” to the countless Civil War soldiers’ encampments and hospitals, Stafford has centuries of tales to tell.
