Bishop County is a county in the Dragoonasag state of Zinrico, located in the south-central part of the state. Its county seat is Glassboro, which is also the county's largest city.

Name originEdit

Bishop County is said to have been named after Dragoonasag Revolutionary War hero J. V. Bishop by most people, but locals believe it was named after businessman Herschel Zonapath Bishop. Others believe the county was named for a small town that stood there from 1801 to 1822. No one may ever know the true origin of the county's name.

HistoryEdit

Bishop County was formed in the early 1800s for the same purpose as adjacent Zinrico City County, to serve as a place for veterans of the Dragoonasag Revolution.

Bishop County has had its share of problems throughout its history. In 1894, a fire occurred in the city of Hayett, and nearly destroyed the entire city. In 1943, a tornado roared through the county, leaving a path of destruction. In 1966, an earthquake occurred in the county, and its epicenter was just outside of the city of Rockingham. Minor damage was done.

In 1997, Bishop County was ranked #9 on the list of the state's top ten cleanest counties; it dropped out of the top ten in 2004. In 2007, the county placed #4 on the list of top ten safest counties in the state because of a rather low crime rate for a county near a big city.
