Our Community

Located in the heart of Virginia, Lynchburg is a thriving city known for its history, outdoor beauty, and quality of life. It s big enough to offer amenities such as convenient air and Amtrack service, yet small enough to be free of traffic congestion and urban crime rates. Lynchburg is conveniently located along the Blue Ridge Mountains in Central Virginia, just three hours from Washington, D.C., and coastal beaches, and only minutes from lakefront communities, mountaintop trails, and ski slopes. There are two lakes within 40 miles of the area (Smith Mountain and Leesville) where lake lovers can enjoy boating, prime time fishing, and scenic views. The Lynchburg area provides a broad range of housing options, acclaimed schools, a vibrant arts community, and temperate weather. Our community is surrounded by four universities and colleges providing diversity in the community and opportunity for undergraduate and graduate education.

Farmville is a vibrant and growing small town located in the heart of Virginia. Two reputable universities, Longwood and Hampden Sydney, bring culture and arts to the area, and the 31-mile-long High Bridge Trail offers great walking and cycling (new single track trails added) opportunities and is accessible right in the busy historic shopping district. Gorgeous countryside, rich history, good restaurants, a brewery, a hip updated hotel with rooftop bar, and a wine tasting room round out the fun. Richmond, Charlottesville, and Lynchburg are all between a 45 and 75-minute drive.
