Waynesboro homes for sale

Waynesboro is an independent city surrounded by Augusta County, seated along Interstate 64 between Charlottesville and Staunton. Waynesboro homes are known for being high-quality and affordable, making the town popular with Charlottesville commuters who enjoy its small-town charm.

The area now known as Waynesboro was once called Teasville, but the name was changed in the late 1790s to honor General Anthony Wayne, an officer in the Revolutionary War who became famous for his leadership during the Northwest Indian War. Waynesboro was officially recognized by the State of Virginia in 1801 and was incorporated in 1834

During the Civil War, Waynesboro was the site of the last battle fought by Confederate general Jubal Early. On March 2nd, 1865, Early’s forces, which had been severely weakened by the defeats of the 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaigns, clashed with General George Custer’s Third Cavalry Division, who were on their way south to join the Carolinas Campaign. The Battle of Waynesboro lasted only about 20 minutes, as Early’s army was quickly overwhelmed and nearly all of the Confederate forces were killed or captured. Early and his staff managed to escape through the Rockfish Gap and he was relieved of command shortly afterward. Exhibits and artifacts from the Battle of Waynesboro are on display at the Plumb House Museum.

Today, Waynesboro is known for its sweeping mountain and valley views and close proximity to amenities like Blue Ridge Parkway, Skyline Drive, and the Appalachian Trail. The city’s lengthy history also makes it notable, as 11 separate Waynesboro homes and districts are listed in the Virginia Historic Register.
