Travelers Rest stands on the high ground northwest of Chapel Creek in the major drainage basin of the upper section of the county and faces an old road that was once an Indian trail. 

Before 1665 it was called by the colonists Richard Path and led to the first "up country" settlement, which became Newtown. Later it was the colonial post road which George Washington followed between Mount Vernon and Williamsburg. 

Travelers Rest was the natural name for a place that reached to the large stream at the foot of its hill where travelers and tobacco "rollers"could rest and refresh themselves before they reached Todd`s Warehouse with its store, tavern and market for tobacco. 

The two houses once built by the Baylors who ancestors had made fortunes in trading and shipping are both recently restored.
