Wytheville Virginia, county seat of Wythe County and strategically located in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Southwest Virginia. Close to Roanoke and Washington, D.C., both Wytheville Virginia and Wythe County have much to offer, including a wide variety of activities year-round.
Wythe County has been known as an agricultural county in the past; however, in recent years manufacturing operations have become increasingly important due to the interstate highway and rail transportation network. The past two decades have seen the area building the foundation for progressive industrial development.
Some of the largest activities include the Concerts in Withers Park, Relay For Life, numerous flea markets and car shows, Chautauqua in the Park, Lions Club Carnival, Rural Retreat/Wythe County Fair and lots more.
