It is our goal to begin a tradition of events and activities to provide a fun, safe and loving community for all to enjoy. Our vision includes supporting small business & encouraging entrepreneurs.

Snuggled in the heart of southern Virginia, you will find small town Chase City, which was founded in 1873. Our town was named after Salmon P. Chase, United States Chief Justice and Lincoln's Secretary of the Treasury.
Spring begins with our giant heart, American Legion Poppies, emerging from frozen ground. By the end of May, pollinators will enjoy sweet blossom nectar. Thank our local businessman, Monty Hightower, for inspiring this community project and donating many hours and materials to start the path that will host birds, butterflies & bees as they gather fuel to do important work. Thanks, too, for the dozens of volunteers working together to continue the growing park.
