Prince Edward County is a part of the Greater Richmond Region. Prince Edward County was established in the Virginia Colony in 1754 from Amelia County. It was named for Prince Edward, second son of Frederick, Prince of Wales and younger brother to George III. The original county seat had been located at Worsham's Ferry on the Meherrin River near its confluence with the Nottoway River; however, it burned down prior to 1755 and no replacement building ever existed there after that time. The county court house has been located in Farmville since 1813 when it moved from Worsham's Store (also known as Union Hall). In 1861 during the American Civil War Confederate troops under General P G T Beauregard retreated from their failed attack on Washington D C across this county following their defeat at Manassas Junction. The Battle of Mine Run took place just over its northern border near Brandy Station .
