Situated in the shadow of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Albemarle County, the Crozet Historic District began in 1876 as a railroad stop that gave rise to a crossroads village along the prominent Three Notch’d Road. A prosperous fruit and orchard industry in the area transformed the village into a thriving community at the turn of the 20th century. Crozet’s historic buildings mostly date from 1900 through 1930, reflecting its expansion from a community centered on a train depot and crossroads into a regional hub for packing, storage, and shipping of orchard products.
