Welcome to Amelia County, Virginia
“ A Proud History … and a Bright Future”
I am honored, as Chairman of the Board of Supervisors, to welcome you to beautiful Amelia County, Virginia, one of the last great undiscovered treasures of the Commonwealth. Amelia, part of the historic Commonwealth or “Heartland” Region of Virginia has a long and storied history of agriculture, self reliance and deep rooted family values, which are venerated, fostered and flourish in our community to this day.
Situated a mere thirty-five miles from the historic state capital of Richmond, Amelia continues to be a rural haven within a quickly developing metropolitan area, and a community where agriculture and forestry remain important components of our economy. Breathtaking sunsets, rolling hills, awe-inspiring forests, rural farmlands, friendly and welcoming citizens, the charming village of Amelia Court House and the stately Appomattox River all can be found here.
Recreational opportunities abound in Amelia County, from the hunting and fishing that is so valued in this rural paradise, to go cart racing, paintball and a full service Recreation Department and Public Library. We also celebrate our County with May’s “Amelia Day Celebration” and in August/September with the “Amelia County Fair” which we are proud to say was recently honored as the best small County Fair in Virginia. Each of these festivities is family oriented, beloved by our people and continue to be highly anticipated annual events.
Amelia is also blessed with economic opportunities including low taxes, a new industrial Park on Us Route 360, close proximity to the Richmond Metropolitan Area population, has outstanding Schools and still maintains its pastoral charm. And perhaps of greater significance to our current and future residential and business communities alike, Amelia is growing, dedicated to the protection of our natural resources, the preservation of our rich history, a commitment to be an open and inclusive community with a clear focus on a sustainable and prosperous future.
As Chairman, I would encourage you to come and share our rural lifestyle, enjoy the amenities of our County and take advantage of the abundance of economic opportunities in one of the Commonwealth’s last undiscovered treasures.
If a visitor to our County, we want this site to help you find information quickly and easily, and if a resident of Amelia, we want to provide you a level of service that will increase your enjoyment and pride in living here in the bucolic splendor of a County with “A Proud Past … and a Bright Future!”
And finally, on behalf of the Amelia County Board of Supervisors, our County Administrator, A. Taylor Harvie, III, and our staff, may I take this opportunity to personally thank you for visiting our Webpage. We are proud of our County and look forward to sharing with you what our people have known for generations.
Amelia is a beautiful place to be.
Franklin D. Harris, Chairman
