Description

Where the Shenandoah River forks, Front Royal and Warren County lie nestled at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Although explorers first viewed the area in the mid-1600s, Front Royal was not chartered until 1785, and it was 1836 before Warren County was formed. Shortly thereafter, railroad service came to the region, creating a tremendous economic impact. The War between the States took a great toll on the town and county, with the Union Army occupying the town six times. Although economically devastated by the war, the communities were rebuilt and the railroad resumed operation in 1873, giving the entire region a much needed revival. During the 20th century, industry flourished here, primarily dominated by American Viscose and the Old Virginia Packing Company. The 1930s brought a great influx of people to the area with the development of the Shenandoah National Park and the exploration of Skyline Caverns, situated between Front Royal and Skyline Drive. Today countless visitors are drawn to the rich history and quaint charm of Front Royal and Warren County.
