Want to know a little more about the history? Well, Page County was formed from parts of Shenandoah and Rockingham counties by an act of the Virginia General Assembly in 1831. Luray, the county seat, was founded in 1812, Shenandoah, the southernmost town, was established in 1884, and Stanley, near the center of the county, was established in 1900. During its formation in 1831, Page County, Virginia, located in the Shenandoah Valley was named for Governor John Page.
The beauty and serenity of Page County is something that residents and visitors cherish and will endure forever. The county’s western edge is protected by the George Washington National Forest and to its east by the Shenandoah National Park, Virginia’s only national park. There are no interstate highways anywhere within the county’s borders, allowing Page County’s river, farmlands, and mountain views to remain as unspoiled now as they were when the county was founded originally.
