HISTORY OF CARROLL COUNTY VIRGINIA - Named for Charles Carroll, the longest-lived signer of the Declaration of Independence, the county is primarily agricultural, but its roots go deep into the music of the mountains. Carroll County is one of the major counties along The Crooked Road: Virginia's Heritage Music Trail. Jam sessions are offered somewhere almost every night of the week, and admission is usually free. The town of Galax is partly in Carroll County and is the home of the oldest, continuous Old Fiddler's Convention that takes place every August. Carroll County sits in southwestern Virginia in the Blue Ridge Mountains of southwest Virginia. Some 25 miles of the Blue Ridge Parkway runs through the southern section of the county with spectacular overlooks as well as nature preserves and the New River Trail State Park. The Carroll County Courthouse in Hillsville was the scene of a tragic shootout in 1912 that caught the attention of the nation, and story tours are offered by the historical society.

ANNUAL EVENTS - Labor Day gun Show and Flea Market in Hillsville. Old Fiddler's Convention every August in Galax. Hillsville Summer Concert Series each May through September.
