Greensville County, a county rich with tradition, takes great pride in its unique blend of homes, businesses, agriculture and industry. Our central location along the eastern seaboard of the United States between Raleigh, Richmond and Hampton Road, places Greensville County within a day’s drive of over 50 metropolitan areas and nearly two-thirds of the United States population.
More than 12,000 people call Greensville County home, but because of our location, relative to the excellent road and highways, the area effectively draws in labor and customers from a much larger region – service a potential population of nearly 147,000 people. The Greensville County landscape, location and market area are some of the factors residents, tourists, businesses and industries find attractive.
One of the great attributes of Greensville County and the City of Emporia is its residents. Numerous charitable events are held annually all attributable to volunteers in the community. Some examples of successful volunteer work in the community are the Virginia Pork Festival, The Relay for Life, The Virginia Peanut Festival, and the Meherrin River Arts Council.
