Biographical or historical data
Alleghany County bears a variant spelling derived from the name of the Allegheny Mountains that pass along the county's western boundary. It was formed in 1822 from Bath, Botetourt, and Monroe (now in West Virginia) Counties. Subsequent additions were made from Monroe County in 1843 and Bath County in 1847. On 20 March 1991, the General Assembly authorized the consolidation of Alleghany County and the independent city of Clifton Forge into a new independent city of Alleghany. The citizens of both locales voted against the proposal on 5 May 1992, however, and the change did not take effect. In March 2001 Clifton Forge's citizens voted to relinquish city status, and Alleghany County regained the city (now town) of Clifton Forge on 1 July 2001. The county seat is Covington.
