Great country tract available for home site and outdoor activities and convenient to everything!
Great home site tract, recreational and weekend getaway as well. Nestled off the main road down a quiet deeded lane, this tract can give you privacy, peace, quiet, and convenience. Soil maps indicate good for an underground septic system. All wooded tract has some low land, some high land, creeks, hills, and it rolls throughout. This tract will make a great place for family recreation if you like to camp, hunt, 4 wheel, or just want a place of your own to work on and improve every few weekends. It is only minutes from the city of Emporia with shopping and restaurants. With I 95 also being only minutes away, the Petersburg/Richmond area to the north and Rocky Mount to the south, are all less than an hour away. The timber is approximately 15 years old. This tract definitely offers country atmosphere with convenience. Adjacent 7.7 acres available too! Both are priced right.
Emporia has long been a transportation crossroads. Although rivers further to the north empty into the James River and Chesapeake Bay, the Meherrin River, like the Nottoway River and the Blackwater River, empties to the southeast into Albemarle Sound. The Town of Hicksford (also sometimes called Hick’s Ford) was settled in 1710 in the Virginia Colony, where the Fort Road of eastern Virginia crossed the Meherrin River en route to Fort Christanna, as well as on a major north-south trail used by native peoples and sometimes called the “Halifax road”.
Historic buildings in Emporia include the Belfield-Emporia Historic District, Hicksford-Emporia Historic District, Greensville County Courthouse Complex, Greensville County Training School, H. T. Klugel Architectural Sheet Metal Work Building, Old Merchants and Farmers Bank Building, and Village View, all of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
