Campbell County was formed in 1781, the first Virginia county formed after the American Revolution. It is located in the southern part of central Virginia and is bordered by Bedford County to the west, Pittsylvania and Halifax Counties to the south, Appomattox and Charlotte Counties to the east and Amherst County and the City of Lynchburg to the north (Lynchburg was formed from part of Campbell County in 1786.). Campbell County encompasses 511 square miles and includes the incorporated towns of Brookneal and Altavista. The County is home to more than 54,000 residents who enjoy living in areas that range from the established suburbs of the city to rural farms that are miles from any town or village. Campbell County affords a good quality of life and a diverse economy that are supported by an effective transportation network. Major roads in the County include U.S. Routes 29, 460 and 501. Charlottesville, Roanoke, and Danville are a one-hour drive away while Richmond, Greensboro, Raleigh and Durham can each be reached within two hours. An extensive network of rail lines supports the transportation of materials and products. Commercial flights are available through the Lynchburg Regional Airport, which is also located in Campbell County.
