The Commonwealth of Virginia is one of the oldest states in the country, with colonial structures dating back to 1607.
As one of the most historically rich states, Virginia's economy has expanded overtime. Agriculture, to this day, remains one of the top industries in Virginia. However, because of the state's location to Washington, DC, many federal government and defense workers and contractors live in Virginia.
Technology is another sector that constitutes much of Virginia's economy, along with tourism.
