Northumberland is the ancestor to 95 present-day counties in VA and other states. For hundreds of years, Northumberland remained a county largely isolated from the rest of the state due to the lack of a road network. In 1927, the Downing Bridge connected Essex County to the Northern Neck, and with this access to the west, growth began in the area.
