Augusta County was named in honor of Princess Augusta, mother of George III. It was formed from Orange County in 1738 but because of the unsettled state of the region, county government was not actually established until 1745. Its area is 986 square miles. The county seat, Staunton, is the birthplace of Woodrow Wilson.
