Earlysville is a rural community located just northwest of Charlottesville, close to the Charlottesville Regional Airport (CHO). It features pretty rural neighborhoods and lovely farms and estates. Schools are located in the village or close by, and good shopping and popular restaurants are all within 15 minutes of Earlysville-proper.
Many of the area’s major employers are located within a 10 – 30 minutes drive of Earlysville, including the University of Virginia, Downtown businesses, the National Ground Intelligence Center (NGIC), and companies based at the University of Virginia Research Park.
Earlysville offers subdivided, neighborhood environments, with lot sizes ranging from 1-5 acres on streets which end in cul de sacs. There are also more rural neighborhoods, areas that are not contained; they are, instead, individual 2+ acre homesites that border state roads or are located at the end of long driveways. It’s a very interesting, very beautiful area, with pastoral, wooded, or mountain views at every turn.
This is a neighborhood community, where people know and care about one another. There is a certain peace and quiet, and an expectation of privacy, that comes with living in a rural environment, no matter how convenient it may be to shopping, school, and employment.
Those of us who have chosen Earlysville as our home know that we enjoy the best of all worlds.

HISTORY OF EARLYSVILLE
THE EARLYSVILLE VOLUNTEER FIRE HOUSE
Our Earlysville Volunteer Fire Company – this piece was written by Earlysville resident and committed Fire Company volunteer, Lois Dean. I’m not certain of the date, but I would guess it was around the year 2000.
“Before the early 1960s, the community of Earlysville was mostly rural farmland. There was a small grocery store with gas pumps. The post office was located in the corner of a home next to the grocery store. There were no subdivisions in the area. Then, Earlysville, like most communities started growing with many new homes being built. READ THE INTERESTING HISTORY OF The Earlysville Volunteer Fire Company.
Michie Tavern was originally located in Earlysville. – References for the following history come from newspaper articles, primarily the Daily Progress, beginning July 1954 through October 1974. I have gained all of my information from the archives located at the Albemarle Charlottesville Historical Society.
Most Earlysville residents learn this about the 17th century Michie Tavern. While it now stands nearby Jefferson’s Monticello, it was originally constructed along Buck Mountain Road between Free Union and Earlysville. Also, there is a marker along the Buck Mountain Road that approximates the original location of the tavern. A BRIEF HISTORY OF MICHIE TAVERN AS IT RELATES TO EARLYSVILLE
