Welcome to the official online home of the Dickenson County Chamber of Commerce!
Dickenson County was established in 1880, the youngest county in the state of Virginia and is often called “Virginia’s Baby.” The county consists of three towns, Clintwood, Haysi and Clinchco.
Whether you are a visitor or a citizen of the county, our scenic beauty and rich culture leave a lasting impression. The Chamber of Commerce is proud of our supporting role in the growth and development of businesses and communities throughout the county.
We are committed to building a stronger business community and developing tourism in Dickenson County. We are a part of the Crooked Road “Virginia’s Music Trail”, home to The Breaks Interstate Park, known as the Grand Canyon of the South, the John Flannigan Dam & Reservoir and the Ralph Stanley Museum and Traditional Mountain Music Center.
If you enjoy small town living, friendly people, beautiful mountains and a country setting, then plan a visit to Dickenson County. We are developing new hiking, biking and horseback riding trails and have many adventures for the outdoor activists. White water rafting and canoeing, fishing, skiing, camping, horseback riding, hiking and biking are some of the festivities awaiting you in our county. As part of the Virginia Coal Heritage Trail, we offer museums detailing coal mining and railroad memorabilia. Coal Mining, Railroads and Traditional Mountain Music play a major part for the heritage culture in our county.
