Floyd Virginia – A Great Place to Live

Well look at who’s getting some well-deserved recognition!

From VirginiaLiving.com:

The secret that is Floyd, Virginia is getting out. The little mountain town in southwest Virginia has made Mother Earth News’ fifth annual “6 Great Places You’ve (Maybe) Never Heard Of” list, recognizing towns and cities that “stand out for their commitment to culture, community and sustainability.

The sustainable-lifestyle magazine is particularly taken with the town’s music scene, which features “various old-time fiddle and banjo styles” and centers around the locally famous Floyd Country Store. 

Because of illness or chronic conditions, need great resources and additional support to remain at home. Let us relieve your concerns by providing compassionate, one-on-one care in the comfort of your own home. Mother Earth News is also impressed with the strong alternative community, which has fostered a lively arts scene and what the magazine calls a “DIY, back-to-the-land ethic.” Hippy stuff, basically, but in the best possible way. Because this is a town that seems well prepared for change.

According to the 2000 Census, Floyd has a population of just 432. That number is likely to grow as Floyd receives recognition and attracts newcomers, but movements like the Sustain Floyd organization exist to “preserve and enhance the local community”, meaning newcomers are welcome, but Floyd isn’t about to lose the flavor that made it so attractive to begin with.”
