Botetourt County (pronounced bot'-uh-tot) is one of Virginia's most scenic and historically significant counties. A blended rural and suburban community nestled just north of Roanoke, Botetourt offers American history blended with nature and modern attractions. When it was first established, the county extended all the way to the Mississippi river, covering parts of seven present-day states. Botetourt County offers a slice of Americana, with charming small towns, world class outdoor recreation, traditions, and southern hospitality in the heart of Virginia's Blue Ridge.
