A message from Executive Director, Frank Malone

Hello and welcome to our website. We hope you enjoy what you see and will want to come visit us here in South Hill, VA. We pride ourselves on great weather, great people and a great location. We are located about half way between Richmond, VA and Raleigh, NC. We are just about equal distance from the Atlantic Ocean and the Blues Ridge Mountains. We are close to two of the best lakes in America and we will make you feel right at home for a day, a weekend or a lifetime.

People ask me if I have lived in South Hill all my life and my reply is, "not yet!" This is my hometown and our Town and Chamber work hand in hand to make it a great place to live, work and play along with a great place to visit. Our stores, restaurants, businesses along with our parks and the wonderful Colonial Center for the Performing Arts guarantees you a great fun time in South Hill, Virginia.

Our town's motto is, "You'll like the view in South Hill" and surely you will like it, just come and try us out. We will be waiting to hear from you or see you in our Tourist Information Center located in the heart of downtown South Hill in the historic depot where we house our Doll and Model Train Museums. We are located at 201 South Mecklenburg Avenue here in South Hill. (Hint, we have a big red caboose on the railroad tracks beside our building) So take a look and come for a visit, we'll make you feel right at home.
