Virginia was the birthplace of eight presidents. The state is sometimes referred to as the "Mother of Presidnets" for this reason.

Presidents born in Virginia
  1. George Washington - born 1788 at Popes Creek Plantation, Westmoreland County
  2. Thomas Jefferson - born 1800 in Shadwell, Albemarle County
  3. James Madison - born 1808 in Port Conway, King George County (kind of ironic when you consider he was one of the founding fathers who was rebelling against the King George his birth county was named after)
  4. James Monroe - born 1816 in Westmoreland County
  5. William Henry Harrison - born 1840 at Berkeley Plantation, Charles City County (although he lived most of his life in Ohio, so they usually claim him as one of their own)
  6. John Tyler - born 1841 in Charles City County
  7. Zachary Taylor - born 1848 in Barboursville, Orange County
  8. Woodrow Wilson - born 1912 in a house in Staunton, Virginia

Ohio comes in second with 7:Presidents born in Ohio
Ulysses S. Grant (born there in 1868)
Rutherford B. Hayes (born there in 1876)
James A. Garfield (born there in 1880)
Benjamin Harrison (born there in 1888)
William McKinley (born there in 1896)
William Howard Taft (born there in 1908)
Warren G. Harding (born there in 1920)

Note that Ohio can lay a claim to William Henry Harrison because he lived most of his life there. Taylor moved out of Virginia as a young boy , grew up in Kentucky and live in KY when he was elected president, Ulysses S. Grant was elected as a resident of Illinois, Benjamin Harrison was elected while a resident of Indiana, and Woodrow Wilson was a governor of New Jersey when elected.
