We love that Virginia has its very own historic charm and close-knit community. Virginia was first settled in 1848, and became well known as an Irish settlement. These early settlers – many who were escaping the Great Famine – cleared the thick bushland to plant wheat, which became a popular crop for the region. The town’s first pub, the Wheatsheaf Hotel, was built on the site of the new V Hotel back in 1854. Many of the descendants of the original Irish settlers still live in Virginia, along with a diverse range of new residents.
