Shenandoah County GenWeb Project

Shenandoah County, known previously as Dunmore, was formed in 1772. The name Shenandoah has thirty variant spellings. The Senedos lived north of New Market and the name is derived from that tribe.

To the west of Shenandoah County is the Great North Mountain, to the east is Massanutten Mountain. Cedar Creek is the northern boundary and the southern boundary abuts Rockingham County.

The highest elevation is 3293 feet (summit of Mill Mountain) and the lowest elevation is 490 feet (where Cedar Creek meets with the North Fork of the Shenandoah River). (Source: Shenandoah County Gazetteer and Historical Geography, Irvin D. Magin, 1991)

Your Shenandoah County Coordinators are Warren Swartz & Jackie Milburn. Contributions to this site are gladly accepted!

I cannot do research for you. If you need help, please join the Shenandoah COUNTY discussion list, VASHENAN, created for discussing the COUNTY of Shenandoah, not the entire Shenandoah Valley.
