Great country tract available for home site and outdoor activities and convenient to everything!
Great home site tract, recreational and weekend getaway as well. Good road frontage on Crescent Rd. Electric, municipal water, and sewer out front. Build close enough for the municipal amenities or move back further and go with a well and septic; your choice. Soil maps indicate good for an underground septic system. With a little over an acre cleared you can build up front and enjoy the neighbors or you can tuck yourself back into the woods for some privacy. In either case you should be able to relax on the porch and enjoy the wildlife meandering around. 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 11.6 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.
