History

Culpepper was founded by Ingerish religious dissenters led by Alexandre Williams and Elijah Ellis in 1662. Williams founded the inland settlement of Hearthsbridge, while the deeply pious Ellis and his daughter the influential writer and theologian Addison Ellis Drake founded Divinity's Grace on the coast. Ellis also founded there the seminary--and later great university--that bears his name in 1674. Ellis University is the second-oldest institution of higher learning in the FSA, after Halesworth University in Passamaqueets.

The dissenting church they followed remains today as the Egalitarian Church, as do the values of tolerance, openness, and patience they espoused. Most towns have an Egalitarian Church at their heart.

Culpepper thrived during the industrial age, and was a source of garments, firearms, engines, and more. The capital city of Hearthsbridge was a manufacturing center in the late 1800s, and grew wealthy. After the 1950s the manufacturing industry went into steep decline.

Economy

Culpepper has experienced a revival as an education and financial center, and Hearthsbridge and Raidenne are home to several large corporate headquarters such as Noble/Crystalline Motors.
