The Virginia General Assembly established Page County on March 30, 1831.  Back then, small communities consisted of a store, church, school, flour mill, post office, blacksmith shop, the Shenandoah Railroad, and of course, the local Sheriff’s Office.  That same year, Daniel Stover was elected as Page County’s first Sheriff.  Pictured above is a photo of Luray taken in 1883, with the railroad seen prominently in the foreground.  Photo credit: Warren and Penny Smith Collection, pictured in Images of America, Luray and Page County by Dan Vaughn.  [Pop-up]
