Founded in 1749, Southampton County, Virginia, owes its rich economic heritage to agriculture and forestry. For generations, our land assets (600 square miles) have served our residents well and our people have maintained high quality work standards through their dedication and commitment to the land. As our economy progresses and diversifies, it is that same respect for resources and strong work ethic that make this workforce exemplary. Land may be our most plentiful resource, but our people are our greatest resource.
Known for traditional values and a progressive stance toward economic development, Southampton County looks forward to sharing our bright future with business and industry!
