Visitors - Powhatan County Chamber of Commerce
Powhatan County is an ideal community in which to live, work, raise a family, and enjoy a variety of recreational opportunities. The County’s high quality of life and excellent programs and services are among the many reasons that more than 28,000 people now call Powhatan home.
More and more people are discovering the charms of Powhatan, making it one of the fastest growing communities in the state. The area is graced with beautiful single family homes on farms and estate size lots, with a wide spectrum of styles that range from historic Revolutionary War period houses to new subdivisions that boast the latest in modern amenities.
Homes reflect individual tastes and custom designs, and range in price from under $200,000 to well over a million. A Comprehensive Land Use Plan throughout most of the county specifies five-acre average and two-acre minimum lot sizes. Smaller lots are permitted in some areas.
Some residents opt for the convenience of in-town living with easy access to the local shops and services within the Village of Powhatan. One whole new community includes Scottville at Powhatan Courthouse, a new housing development for active adults in the Village of Powhatan that features smaller lots, neighborhood shops and walking paths.
Although easy highway access and the reputation as an excellent place to raise a family are bringing more people, the rural character and friendliness of small town America remains at the heart of the community.
