Albemarle County Road Orders, 1783-1816
Pawlett, Nathaniel Mason.
Year: 1975
VTRC No.: 76-R27
Abstract: During the early stages of the pilot study of Albemarle County it was necessary to examine and extract all the road orders for the counties from which Albemarle was formed, as well as the orders for Albemarle when it still contained the counties of Amherst, Buckingham, Fluvanna, Nelson, and a part of Appomattox. The broad applicability of the orders for Goochland, Louisa, and early Albemarle, and the opinions of various authorities throughout the state who examined them, indicated that they should have separate publication in order to make them generally available to individual scholars through libraries and educational institutions.
