History

Charles Town was founded in 1786 by Charles Washington, the first president’s younger brother. Charles had inherited a sizeable amount of land in the Shenandoah River Valley, and after the Revolutionary War ended, he built his home there. After receiving permission from the Virginia Assembly to build a town, he set aside 80 acres of his own property and began planning the town’ s development. He found a unique way to honor his relatives by naming streets after family members, including his wife and older brothers. Other streets, such as Congress and Liberty, were named after patriotic ideals. Charles also set aside an area for a town square and planned for public buildings to be built there. The town square was built at the intersection of George and Washington Streets. At the time the town was formed, it was situated in Berkeley County, but as the area grew, new counties were formed, and in 1801, Charles Town became the county seat of Jefferson County.

With its close proximity to Washington D.C., Charles Town has been the scene of several historical events. In 1859, John Brown staged a raid on the federal weapons arsenal at nearby Harper’s Ferry. After Brown was overtaken by federal troops, he was charged with treason, and his trial was held at the Jefferson County Court House. After being declared guilty, Brown was hanged in a nearby field. During the Civil War, the Battle of Charles Town was waged at the same courthouse and around the surrounding countryside. As a result of heavy artillery fire, the courthouse and many other buildings were damaged and had to be rebuilt after the war. There were several additional skirmishes between Union and Confederate forces that occurred in the general area. In 1863, Charles Town became part of the new state of West Virginia.
