The city was incorporated in 1967 through the consolidation of three separate towns: Leaksville, Spray, and Draper.Several small historic downtown areas have opened up, such as the "Olde Leaksville" shopping district, in an effort to bring tourists to the city.GeographyEden is located at . The Smith and the Dan River have their confluence on the south side of Eden. The Dan River flows along Eden's southern border while the Smith River flows from the north bisecting the city on its route to meet the Dan River.According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 15.2sqmi, of which, 15.0sqmi of it is land and 0.2sqmi of it is water.HistoryEden was a 70000acre estate owned by William Byrd II, a planter of Virginia and North Carolina. The estate was originally called "The Land of Eden".During the last years of his life, William Byrd II dreamed of bringing large numbers of Swiss Protestants to the "Land of Eden", which eventually included over 100000acre in Virginia. He envisioned an industrious, self-sufficient colony that would thrive on the abundance of the frontier. Byrd's dream was not to be realized. After years of negotiations, at least one boatload of Swiss did sail for "The Land of Eden" from Europe, but it was shipwrecked in a December gale off the coast of Virginia, and none of the few survivors are believed to have reached Eden. Byrd died August 26, 1744, as the "Land of Eden" began to be surrounded by the settlement of Scotch-Irish, whom Byrd had compared to the "Goths and Vandals."
