Our Chamber of Commerce is a voluntary partnership of individuals and business professionals working together to advance the economy and to improve the quality of life in our community. Chamber members are citizens concerned with the socio-economic climate of our community joining together to accomplish goals. The Chamber serves as both salesperson and advocate to local business.
A Chamber’s objectives are:
• to help businesses prosper and grow;
• to increase job opportunities;
• to encourage an orderly expansion and development of all segments of the community;
• to contribute to the overall economic stability of the community;
• to encourage and promote the nation’s private enterprise system of competitive marketing.
The Powhatan Chamber of Commerce continually strives to support and enhance the quality of life for our citizens by promoting economic development and maintaining our friendly, rural atmosphere. We are proud of our community and committed to being responsive to the needs of our businesses and residents.
The Chamber Membership Directory and Consumer Guide is one of many benefits offered to the Chamber’s members and the Powhatan community. This publication is designed to provide an overview of the unique features and attractions of our beautiful community, as well as information to those who are new to Powhatan. We hope you find our publication helpful.
Welcome from the Powhatan
Chamber of Commerce
On behalf of the Powhatan Chamber Board of Directors, we welcome you to our charming county of approximately 28,000 residents. Powhatan is one of the fastest-growing communities and is ranked as the sixth “healthiest” in the Commonwealth of Virginia.
We are proud of the rich history our county offers. Formed in 1777 and named after Chief Powhatan, father of Pocahontas, Powhatan County has diverse heritage, including five Civil War Trails sites and 19 buildings and 2 historic districts on the National Register of Historic Places.
If you appreciate the feel of a community where you’ll always be welcome and where the customer service will keep you coming back, then please visit our restaurants and businesses that make Powhatan unique. The residents enjoy a slightly slower pace than the surrounding counties, and visitors come back over and over because they enjoy the personality of our quaint and rural spaces.
Whether you are a long time resident, a visitor, or have recently relocated to the area, the officers, board and members of the Powhatan Chamber of Commerce are delighted to make this Membership Directory and Consumer Guide available to you.
We ask that you patronize the businesses whose membership and advertising made this guide possible. The members of the Powhatan Chamber of Commerce are ready to provide you with the best quality products and services available. We encourage you to think of Powhatan first when you are ready to dine or purchase.
If you are joining us for a day or a lifetime, the Powhatan Chamber of Commerce extends a warm and hospitable welcome!
