The N&W pre-planned and built the Town of Crewe in 1888. Named for the large railroad town of Crewe, England, it was designed first and foremost to support the operations of the N&W as a Divisional halfway point between Norfolk and Roanoke, Virginia. The railroad repair facility’s importance diminished sharply in the 1950s, as the switch to diesel-electric locomotives required less labor and equipment.
Since its early days, Crewe has seen a number of historical events and figures pass through. William Hodges Mann, Governor of Virginia was president of the Bank of Crewe. Baptist missionary Lottie Moon is found her final resting place in the Crewe cemetery. From reconstruction to World War II to today and beyond, Crewe has had its share of events and eccentricities; but through it all, it has maintained its authentic down-home charm.
Nottoway is rich with history from the American Indians to the Civil War. Nottoway County was first inhabited by native American Indians of the Iroquoian nation tribe called Nadowa. The Nadowa lived along the County’s only river and the name of their tribe became associated with the area they inhabited. This name was Anglicized with the coming of English settlers to ‘Nottoway’. The County was also the site of one battle during the War Between the States, the “Battle of the Grove,” which was fought over control of the rail line in Nottoway (a line that served as a major supply line to General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia).
Fort Pickett (Army Reserve) is also home to Nottoway County and FAST-C(Foreign Affairs Security Training Center is currently under construction. Fort Pickett also provides approximately 44,000 open to the public for hunting and fishing with a permit.
