Edinburg Historic District, consisting of 359 buildings, includes the most historically significant area in the town of Edinburg in Shenandoah County. Spanning the period of 1787 to the late 1940s, the district features a town plan that was laid out in the 18th century with most buildings dating to the second half of the 19th century. Settled by German and English families, the town was later an important commercial center that was accessed by the Valley Turnpike and the Manassas Gap Railroad. The Valley Pike town exhibits fine 19th-century architectural styles, as well as a highly intact early 20th-century commercial area. There are several buildings that predate the Civil War, and the town features a fine example of frame mill building architecture.
