Beautiful and historic Appomattox County is located in the rolling Piedmont area of Central Virginia, nestled between the Blue Ridge Mountains to the west and the Tidewater region to the east. The scenic James River forms the County's northern boundary.

With a convenient mid-Atlantic location, Appomattox is within a days drive of over half the nation's population. We are four hours from Washington D.C., three hours from Virginia Beach, 2.5 hours from the Historic Triangle of Jamestown/Williamsburg/Yorktown, and 1.5 hours from Richmond, capitol of Virginia and the old Confederacy.

In addition, the County's location offers a temperate climate with four distinct seasons.
