The Town of Rocky Mount, Virginia set in the beautiful rolling hills of the western Blue Ridge Mountains, has been the seat of Franklin County since its formation in 1786.
Bordered by serene farmlands and majestic forested ridges, Rocky Mount is a thriving small town that serves as the county's government, service, and business center.
The county courthouse is a prominent local landmark. It overlooks a community characterized by gracious churches, vital business districts, charming neighborhoods and winding roads. Rocky Mount is located at a primary crossroads at the geographical center of Franklin County. The town provides services to many smaller rural communities, yet is within easy access to the larger cities of Roanoke Virginia, Greensboro North Carolina and only 20 miles from scenic Smith Mountain Lake.
