Floyd County

Population

Floyd County is a welcoming hub nestled in the heart of the Blue Ridge Mountains. Artists, photographers, and musicians travel from far and wide to take in the beauty of this small yet bustling town that has committed itself to the talent of the artists and craftsmen that call this town home. With a population of over 15,000, don’t let the small size fool you: there is plenty to do, see, and experience. Home to world-famous live music, artists, craftsmen, and wineries, it would be hard to reach the end of all Floyd County has to offer. Downtown Floyd is also home to several unique shopping and dining opportunities, including a brick oven pizza shop and an old-time general story with a candy counter.

Jobs

While much of the town’s history is built on textile production, it has become a more modern location while maintaining its small town charm. Most of the population is employed in office and administrative roles, management occupations, or production. Don’t let the quaint exterior fool you: the average income in Floyd is $48,000. Coupled with the comparatively low cost of living, this means the town can cater to those just starting their career as well as those ready to retire.

Amenities

Floyd hosts several fun events including the 16 Hands Art Tour and FloydFest, a five day celebration of music and art. Two fabulous wineries, Chateau Morrisette, and Villa Appalaccia also make their home in Floyd County. Villa Appalaccia Winery offers weekend tours and tastings. Chateau Morrisette is known for its specialty wines like Our Dog Blue and The Black Dog, as well as their tours and award winning restaurant. Both wineries feature special events year round, further expanding the adventures you will find here.

If you like to explore, you can take advantage of Floyd’s centralized location to visit some of the most beautiful scenery Appalachia has to offer. A short drive down the road is Mabry Mill, one of the most recognizable and photographed locations in the United States. What once used to be an old gristmill and sawmill have been transformed into a premiere location for those traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway, and is a great place to stop, have a picnic, and take in the breathtaking surroundings. You are also less than an hour away from Christiansburg and Blacksburg, which offer their own take on the shopping and dining experiences of the area.
