Welcome to Prince George County, Virginia.
If you are just visiting, we think you will find our County a fantastic place to live or locate a business. We believe our vision statement truly reflects our County, “A global community where families thrive and businesses prosper.”
If you are one of the County’s residents, you already know our County is a great place to live, work, and raise a family.
When established in 1703, Prince George County encompassed an area from where the Appomattox River joins the James River, south and west to the North Carolina line, and to the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Today this area is divided into 17 counties and 4 cities. Our County is rich in history from the first days of Captain John Smith’s exploration of the new world through the Civil War. President Lincoln spent two weeks in Prince George County just before the fall of Petersburg and Richmond as the Civil War was ending.
Prince George County operates with five elected Supervisors under the traditional Board form of government. The Board has legislative responsibilities to include adopting ordinances and resolutions which govern the County. The Board also has administrative responsibilities such as levying taxes, establishing a budget, appropriating funds, and overseeing general County operations. A County Administrator oversees the day to day operations of the County.
Prince George County is proud of its rural heritage. Our Comprehensive Plan recognizes this and works to preserve our farm land while designating specific areas in the northern portions of the County for business development. Our industrial park has many internationally known businesses. Just to name a few: Amazon, Goya Foods Distribution Center, Perdue Farms, and the Rolls Royce Crosspointe Centre facility. We are also home to the Commonwealth Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CCAM). The industrial park is served by three Interstate Highways, US Route 460, the Port of Virginia, and Norfolk Southern railroad which makes the transportation of products very easy in all directions. Prince George County is also the home of the Fort Lee Army Base.
On behalf of the Board of Supervisors and the County Administration, thank you for visiting our County. Whether you live here or are just visiting, we are certain Prince George County has much to offer.
A GLOBAL COMMUNITY WHERE FAMILIES THRIVE AND BUSINESSES PROSPER
