Galax is one of only forty-two independent cities in the United States. It was incorporated in 1906 when the Norfolk and Western Railway extended the railroad to the Galax Station as a lifeline for furniture, lumber, mining, glass and textile industries. The City is located between Carroll and Grayson Counties, and is approximately 8.2 square miles. Galax has long been famous for its music and arts.

Chestnut Creek School of the Arts opened in 2007 as a center whose mission is preserving the art and music heritage of the area. They offer weekend art classes and musical experiences with local legends. They also have a pottery studio that is open to the public, and are in the process of building a woodworking studio to further brand the city as a Music and Art Heritage Hub.
Galax is rich in Appalachian history and home to innumerable musicians, luthiers, and artisans. Summers are abundant with festivals, including: Houston fest, the Old Fiddlers’ Convention, the VA State Barbeque Championship, Smoke on the Mountain, and the Leaf and String Festival.
