Seminary is an unincorporated community in Lee County, Virginia, in the United States.[1] It had previously been known as Turkey Cove, and during the American Civil War the 64th Virginia Infantry trained on the church grounds, partly because its chaplain was Reuben Steele.[2]

HistoryEdit

Seminary was named after the local United Methodist Church seminary.[3]
