Short History of Wytheville

Wytheville is a town in southwestern Virginia. The area was surveyed by Robert Adams in November 1790 to establish a town and county seat for Wythe County, which was created in 1789 and named after the "father of American Jurisprudence" George Wythe. Generally known as Wythe Court House, the town was officially named Evansham in October 1792, after prominent local citizen Jesse Evans. In March 1839, Evansham was devastated by a fire. The town was then renamed Wytheville.

The town of Wytheville played a strategically important role in the American Civil War. In 1863, it was attacked during the Toland's Rail, or Wytheville Raid. The town was attacked again in the Stoneman's 1865 Raid. In the 1900s, the last documented lynching in Virginia occurred in Wytheville. In 1926, an African American man, Raymond Bird – who was arrested for the accusation that he assaulted the minor daughter of his employer, Grover Grubb – was shot and killed by a mob of masked and costumed men in his jail cell. He was then tied to the back of a truck, dragged for miles, and hung on a tree on one of the roads. The event was a catalyst in Virginia passing their anti-lynching law in 1928. During the summer of 1950, the Polio epidemic hit the town. 184 residents contracted the disease, and 17 died. African American patients were forced to drive 300 miles to St. Philip's Hospital in Richmond because they were denied admission to the closest hospital near Wytheville, the Memorial Crippled Children's Hospital in Roanoke.
