Lucille Stout Smith will give an Overview and Pictorial History of the Covesville Historic District
The Covesville Historic District is a village that developed in response to a religious settlement, transportation routes, and a successful apple-growing climate. It became a village in 1828 and was initially settled in the 1740’s by Scotch-Irish and German immigrants from the Shenandoah Valley. In 2005, the community was listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as the Covesville Historic District. Covesville also has three individual historic listings. Covesville is famous for its apples and by 1995, it dominated the apple industry in the state of Virginia.
