A brief history can be found at LDS Newsroom (Virginia) or Deseret News 2010 Church Almanac. The first Mormon missionary to visit Virginia, was Jediah M. Grant, who later served as a counselor to President Brigham Young. During the Prophet Joseph Smith's lifetime, a group of branches in Tazewell County, Virginia was known as Little Nauvoo.
In April 2018, church president Russell M. Nelson announced a new temple to be built in Virginia. The first temple of the church to be built in the state, the temple is located in Glen Allen, Virginia. 
LDS Stakes are groups of congregations. Wards are medium-sized congregations and branches are small congregations.
Stakes are led by a stake presidency (Stake President and 2 counselors, supported by an executive secretary, a stake clerk, and typically 4 assistant clerks) and a high council of 12 councilors. Stakes also have presidencies for the Stake Relief Society, Young Women, Young Men, Primary, and Sunday School.
