The village of Amsterdam was settled in the 1770s at the intersection of three major roads. This copy of a painting of Amsterdam by an unknown artist was made about 1855. Katherine Harris donated it to the Botetourt Historical Museum. More information can be found in Mary Ann Rader Obenshain’s book “The Frontier Settlement of Amsterdam, VA” sold at the BCHS Museum bookstore.
