Giles County is an area rich with history and cultural significance. Home to 17,000 people, its diverse mountain landscape has something to offer everyone in its towns of Pearisburg, Pembroke, Rich Creek, and more. As an outdoor paradise, it boasts 37 miles of the New River Trail and over 50 miles of the Appalachian and Great Eastern Trails. One point of attraction of this particular area is Mountain Lake, a gorgeous mountain resort and lake. This remarkable location was also the filming location of the iconic film “Dirty Dancing.”

Jobs are largely found in manufacturing, but health service and education also offer lots of opportunities.
