Virginia's Tazewell County

For a Whole New Perspective

The Scenic Gateway to the Heart of the Appalachians



Come visit Tazewell County's historic rural sites and small towns to rediscover life the way it used to be: folksy, relaxed, safe, quiet, neighborly.

Enjoy a pioneering experience in a reconstructed pioneer settlement and museum. Become immersed in nature's grandeur as you wander off the main roads.

Walk through the world's oldest exhibition coal mine and its fascinating company town.

Stay over in Virginia's western frontier to tour the magnificent Breaks Interstate Park, watch "Trail of the Lonesome Pine," a unique outdoor drama which tells a true story of frontier romance, thrill to an exciting NASCAR-style race, and relax along hiking trails, view the natural wonders, or fish for trout, bass and muskies. These are among the exciting and wonderful ways for you to enjoy a vacation in the region called the "Heart of the Appalachians, America's Homeplace."

Tazewell County is reached conveniently by Interstates 81 and 77, and U.S. Rts. 19 and 460.
