History

The original name of the town was Richmond Courthouse. In 1830 the town's named changed to Warsaw. A number of other small towns in the United States changed their names to Warsaw at this time (Warsaw, Kentucky for instance), all as a result of sympathy in the United States for the November Uprising in Poland. Because Richmond Courthouse was still unincorporated in 1830, it is unclear who was responsible for the change of name to Warsaw. Historic sites nearby include Menokin, the former home of Francis Lightfoot Lee, Mount Airy and Sabine Hall. A former plantation estate Belle Mount is currently operated as a vineyard and winery within a few miles of Warsaw town limits.
