'Switzerland of America' builds on this nickname. This nickname have also been used for other mountainous states of America. Virginia was called the 'Old Dominion State' because of Charles II added the coat of arms of Virginia to his shield. It be the first American state to come under the aegis of the British monarchy. A little known fact is that Virginia give the United States seven of its first twelve Presidents. This led to another nickname ~ 'Mother of Statesmen.' The mountain ranges of Virginia gave it the moniker of 'Panhandle State.' Each vertex of Virginia is call the East, West and North Panhandle.
