Highland County Overview

Highland County in Virginia was created in 1847, is one of the least populous counties in the state, and east of the Mississippi River. The population was 2,321 as of the 2010 census. The county seat, and largest community is Monterey. Its nickname is “Virginia’s Little Switzerland” and it has one of the highest elevations east of the Mississippi. It has a total area of 416 square miles, almost all of which is land. The county’s western border is naturally defined and lies along the Eastern Continental Divide in the Allegheny Mountains. Likewise, the eastern border lies along the ridge line of Shenandoah Mountain. The northern and southern boundaries of the county are defined more artificially, cutting across numerous mountain ridges and valleys. The county is bordered to the west by Pocahontas County in the state of West Virginia, to the north by Pendleton County, West Virginia, to the east by Augusta County, Virginia, and to the south by Bath County, Virginia. The county is about 150 miles northwest of the capital city of Richmond. Highland County contains parts of the George Washington National Forest concentrated mainly along the county’s western and eastern borders. The Highland Wildlife Management Area, held by the Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries, is a 14,283-acre wildlife preserve located in three locations within the county. These locations include the Jack Mountain tract southwest of McDowell, the Bullpasture Mountain tract south of McDowell in the southeastern corner of the county, and the Little Doe Hill tract west of McDowell. The national forest and Highland Wildlife Management Area combined account for 71,455 acres of Highland County’s land, or approximately 28% of the county’s total land area. All of Highland County is located within the United States National Radio Quiet Zone, a 13,000-square-mile area of limited radio activity. The area is intended to minimize interference at the Green Bank Telescope operated by the National Radio Astronomy Observatory in Green Bank, West Virginia and the Sugar Grove Station in Sugar Grove, West Virginia. Seven zip codes are utilized by the county, the largest of which is 24465.
