Essex County, New Home Communities

Essex County, a region of pastoral rural appeal, has been a home to many since pre-historic times. What attracted them to the area was navigable river and fertile land. Though still beautifying the area, these factors are not the only attraction here anymore. This tranquil location is the choice you might want to make so as to settle down in a relaxing setting with easy and quick access to many vibrant cities.

Wondering which cities can the county keep you connected with? Tappahannock, its county seat, not only has the remarkable shoreline of Rappahannock River, but also features Tappahannock-Essex County Airport. Some other cities that can keep you occupied here include Brays Fork, Caret, Hustle, Champlain and Laneview.

When it comes to events, the region is known for its annual festivals that not only entertain the community but also demonstrate their dedication to the area. Check out Tappahannock Farmer’s Market to get access to vegetables, meats, fruits, cheeses, arts and craft and music. Virginians Concert is organized to pay homage to WWI and WWII veterans. The county hosts RivahFest in June to provide fun seekers with arts and crafts, music, antique cars and children’s activities.

Essex County, with its strategic location, funding opportunities, tax incentives and skilled workforce, helps the community promote and expand their business interests. Some active industrial sectors that boost its economic progress include construction, educational services, administration, food services, retail trade and science and technology. Top employers in the area are Riverside Regional Medical Center, Wal-Mart, Essex County School Board, County of Essex, FDP Virginia, Ball Lumber Company, James River Group and Service Master.

The county provides a vast array of weekend retreats to adventure lovers. Take a stroll through the streets of the historic town of Tappahannock to marvel at 19th, 18th and 17th century buildings.
