Nestled here in the countryside south of Staunton,along historic Middlebrook Road, is one of theoldest villages in the region. William and NancyScott sold the first 27 lots in April 1799 toScots-Irish and German settlers. In 1851, thestagecoach road through the village becamethe Middlebrook and Brownsburg Turnpike.By the late 19th century, Middlebrook, thecenter of a prosperous agricultural communitywith 274 inhabitants including an AfricanAmerican community, was the county's largestvillage. Because 20th-century railroads andhighways bypassed Middlebrook, the rows ofclosely spaced dwellings and stores lining themain road retain the picturesque character ofthe village's heyday in the 1880s.
