WELCOME TO FRANKLIN COUNTY, one of Virginia’s fastest growing counties comprised of communities that continue to value their farms, forests, waters, and cultural heritage. You can discover and choose from a diverse selection of attractions, from outdoor adventures like boating, camping and hiking, to cultural and historic experiences such as visiting the Blue Ridge Institute at Ferrum College or catching one of the many local musical performances. We hope you get a chance to enjoy the many scenic corners of our community where every side road opens up new vistas, views, and quiet moments for those tired of crowds, long lines, and clutter.
