Rocky Mount VA Homes and Real Estate

Rocky Mount VA Homes for Sale

 
Rocky Mount VA HomeOriginally settled in 1760, Rocky Mount, Virginia is the quintessential American small town whose history dates further back than the independence of the United States.  Why would anyone choose Rocky Mount?  As the county seat for Franklin County, Virginia, Rocky Mount serves as the administrative center and is home to the county courthouse, a local landmark. The town is also a business center and, as the crossroads for Franklin County, services to nearby towns are administered through Rocky Mount. Thus the town serves as an integral government, community and cultural link for the entire county.

Yet with a population of just over 4,000, Rocky Mount never loses that small-town feel. The town's Community and Hospitality Center, which celebrates its 100-year anniversary in 2012, is a testament to the true southern nature of hospitality and community. In fact, the town is known for its strong sense of community, and with programs and partnerships like the Community Partnership for Revitalization or the Franklin County Retail Merchants Association, residents of this great town are continuously working together to make Rocky Mount a wonderful place to live and work.

Purchasing one of the available Rocky Mount Va homes is a wise choice for anyone.

And for security, residents can rest assured that the police department, which employs community policing, is always there to ensure safety for Rocky Mount residents as well as secure and protect the peaceful small-town feel.

Any Rocky Mount Va real estate agency will attest to the fact that this small town has the most to offer with a strong community, a full serving of community events to keep residents entertained and connected throughout the year, and a dedicated staff of civil service workers whose main goal is to serve the people of Rocky Mount to the best of their ability.
