Brief History of Scottsville

Scottsville is a town in the counties of Albermarle and Fluvanna, Virginia. Part of the Charlottesville Metropolitan Statistical Area, it was the center of government and commerce for the westernmost part of Virginia in the 1700s. During the late-1700s and 1800s, Scottsville was the largest port town along the James River and Kanawha Canal. It was also the largest grain market in the state because all of the agriculture en route to Richmond and the sea passed through the town on a wagon road.

However, Scottsville became a sleepy country town when trading stopped on the canal and road, and the train no longer took passengers. Today, Scottsville has a total area of 1.5 square miles. As of the 2010 census, it has a population of 566 people. The main roads serving the town are Valley Street (Virginia State Route 20), Hardware Street, and Irish Road and Main Street (Virginia State Route 6).
