Middlesex County is located at the eastern end of Virginia's Middle Peninsula. The County is bounded by the Rappahannock River to the north, by the Chesapeake Bay to the east, by the Piankatank River and Dragon Run Swamp to the southwest, and by Essex County to the northwest. The County has a land area of 132 square miles (83,392 acres) and 135 linear miles of shoreline.
The County's only town, Urbanna, was established in 1680 serving initially as a port for shipping agricultural products and later as the County's commercial and governmental center.
It remains the County's largest commercial center and its only incorporated area but the County seat of government has moved to the Village of Saluda.
To the east, almost to Stingray Point, the Village of Deltaville is situated between the mouths of the Rappahannock and Piankatank Rivers. Once a major center for wooden boat building, the village remains a commercial and recreational center. Numerous fine marinas dominate the waterfront east to Stingray, particularly on Broad Creek.
