As a county located in Commonwealth of Virginia, King George has a population of more than 20 thousand people. Having a total area of 188 square miles, King George is situated on the Northern Neck Peninsula bounded by the Potomac River. On the south, King George is bounded by the Rappahannock River in which Essex and Caroline lies across. The Stafford County lies on the west while the Westmoreland County lies on the east of King George.
For thousands of years before Europeans arrived, indigenous people lived along the waterways of King George. Among these tribes is the Nanzatico (Algonquian-speaking). Most of these natives are captured and shipped to Antigua as they were sold into slavery. In 1720, King George was established by splitting it from Richmond County, Virginia. It was then named after King George I (of Great Britain) and was reorganized in 1776 – 1977.
