Discover Rocky Mount
Rocky Mount is Something Else
We are at the crossroads of The Crooked Road, Virginia's Blue Ridge, and the Smith Mountain Lake Region. We're craftsmen, artists, musicians, farmers, entrepreneurs, and everything in between. We're a great place to pick a tune — or a spot to settle down. We like to think this mixture of so many different things makes us stronger and more beautiful, like a patchwork quilt.
