The Botetourt County Historical Museum serves as a repository for hundreds of artifacts that have helped to interpret the history of Botetourt County for thousands of visitors. Located directly behind the historic Botetourt County Courthouse, the museum is housed in a building that dates back to the late eighteenth century. The museum contains documents and articles of use in daily living dating to 1770 as well as items from the original county courthouse. Guests can visit General James Breckinridge's law office from 1763-1833, learn of Lewis & Clark's ties to the Town of Fincastle, and of the importance of the James River and the Kanawha Canal for travel and commerce.
