That Farmville is the Heart of Virginia? Just a few miles from here is the actual geographic center of Virginia, and Farmville is the dynamic town that makes it all worth the time to stop! There are festivals; unique shopping like at Green Front furniture; High Bridge Trail State Park along with 4 other state parks within 30 miles of town. The end of the American Civil War came charging through here in the last 72 hours – then 85 years later a young African-American girl led a school strike which led to 5 years of schools not being funded rather than allow integration.
Farmville has it all! Come and take a walk through history, or challenge yourself on the largest aerial obstacle course and zip line in the state! Just come!
