Town of Christiansburg (Civic)

Biography:

Christiansburg is a town in Montgomery County, Virginia. The population was 21,041 at the 2010 census. It is the county seat of Montgomery County.

The Town of "Christiansburgh", as it was originally spelled, was named in honor of Colonel William Christian, who was an early settler in the region, one of the first justices of Fincastle County, a member of the Virginia Legislature and brother-in-law of Patrick Henry. Theodore Roosevelt, in The Winning of the West, wrote that Colonel Christian was a "noted Indian fighter" and a "very gallant and honorable man".

Originally a concentration of taverns and rest stops along the Great Wilderness Road (present day U.S. Route 11), the original 1.1-square mile Town was established on November 10, 1792, by an act passed by the Virginia General Assembly. The Town of Christiansburg was later incorporated on January 7, 1833.
