Welcome from the 2012 Chairman Eric Johnsen

On behalf of the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce, we are proud to welcome you to the community that we call home through the pages of the 2012 Chamber Magazine. The Chamber serves as a visitor portal and facilitator to the region’s business community. Our objective is to provide information to guests and people looking for a great place to live, work, retire and to promote a positive, pro-business environment in Montgomery County and the surrounding New River Valley.

2012 Officers Chairman

Virginia’s Montgomery County is ideally located in the Mid-Atlantic region with convenient access in all directions. Interstate 81 bisects our county providing easy access to north and south, as well as to I-77, I-64 and I-40 to expand our business reach to large metropolitan areas. A one day drive connects Montgomery County to two-thirds of the nation’s population. This is an established hightech community and home to one of the nation’s leading education and research institutions, Virginia Tech. The Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center is an award-winning research and business park that serves as a catalyst for the region’s high-tech industry market. The Virginia Tech Montgomery Executive Airport gives convenient access to a broader national and international market. In addition to Virginia Tech, Radford University, The Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine, the Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine and New River Community College are in or directly adjacent to Montgomery County. These institutions attract students from all over the world for a diverse population and broad educational opportunities. That in turn spawns great art and cultural events, as well as athletic activities, entertainment, dining possibilities and shopping. The New River, surrounding national forests and the famed Appalachian Trail contribute to the appeal and lifestyle. All the above provide Montgomery County residents and business members an enjoyable living and working community. With this in mind, Montgomery County is cognitive of its natural beauty and resources, and The Chamber works hard to retain these, while responsibly developing business and promoting positive growth.

Montgomery County is the heart of the New River Valley region of southwest Virginia.

MontgomeryCC.org

Blacksburg is a small town with a big heart. Founded in 1798 by William Black, its current population of approximately 15,000 swells more than 40,000 with Virginia Tech students. Many of the original structures included in Black’s “Sixteen Squares” of Blacksburg’s sixteen blocks remain in use, some repurposed for museums, restaurants and art galleries. The Huckleberry Trail, once a rail line that brought cadets to college, now provides a green commuter option, training ground for runners and bikers or paved surface for a pleasant stroll. It runs more than six miles between downtown Blacksburg, next to the public library, and the New River Valley Mall in Christiansburg. The town’s unique blend of academia, entrepreneurs and small town character attract university research dollars, tourists, alumni and new residents every year. Photo by John McCormick

Christiansburg

Christiansburg, the County seat, is also home to the Christiansburg Aquatic Center, a recreation center and the Harkrader Sports Complex, host of the World Championship Dixie Little League games in 2010. Activities for everyone range from physical fitness and swimming to peewee basketball and workouts. On the third Saturday of September, the town hosts the Wilderness Festival, commemorating Daniel Boone’s visit to see his friend Davy Crockett. Apparently he left a debt unpaid, and a warrant for his arrest is outstanding. Pride in local history is further evident in Christiansburg’s historic Cambria District, and many residents choose Christiansburg as home because of the availability, affordability and charm of its neighborhoods, old and new. Several small, rural communities, like Elliston, Riner and Shawsville, are also part of Montgomery County. These provide not only a respite from the busy-ness of Blacksburg and Christiansburg, but also have unique businesses, pastoral views, working farms, historic sites, back roads and restaurants and shops for tourists and locals to discover. Many places claim to “have it all.” Montgomery County actually does.

Neighborhoods From log cabins and early brick homes to today’s contemporary and historical housing choices, Montgomery County offers homes for every style and budget. For the gentleman farmer, horse enthusiast or rural dweller who treasures privacy, there are houses, lots and land in the outlying settlements of the county. Small enclaves like Riner, Elliston, Shawsville and Pilot have active community programs on a small scale compared to the incorporated towns. The rolling hills and hollows present some of the prettiest country landscapes in which to live, raise a family, grow a garden, enjoy retirement or just own a slice of heaven as a retreat from the hustle and bustle of work life. Photo by John McCormick

Nice developments with an acre or two (or more) lots combine the open, rural setting with the advantages of a neighborhood. Golfers can choose large and small homes in rural settings for lovely views and convenience to their sport. Forest residences include traditional and contemporary houses nestled among towering trees on hills in the county. In the incorporated towns of Blacksburg and Christiansburg, housing options include all price ranges for apartment rentals and condominium, townhouse or duplex purchases – most of them on or very near a bus line. Some developments have been structured for an oldfashioned neighborhood experience with front porches, center medians on streets and a folksy lifestyle where one does know ~ and care about ~ his neighbor. Other home clusters feature green space, playgrounds and walking trails.

Charming houses of all sizes exhibiting architectural styles from a century or more ago are tucked a few blocks from downtown Christiansburg and Blacksburg. In Christiansburg, two very large homes, circa 1870, have been converted to bed and breakfast inns, and others are renovated with contemporary materials and amenities, while maintaining historical appearances and integrity. Smaller, older houses in Blacksburg are popular with residents who walk or bicycle to work on the Huckleberry Trail. Wherever you choose to live in Montgomery County, you’ll not be far from shopping, entertainment, sports, forests, art venues, country roads, town parks, local festivals and a plethora of educational opportunities. The climate is great, and the people are genuine. Montgomery County is one very special place!

Whether you are in Montgomery County for a day, a week or the rest of your life, you’ll find arts and entertainment, food, lodging, leisure activities, shopping, street fairs and sports to suit your mood, the season and your personal interests.

Sports & Outdoors Tailgating for Hokie football fans is a local, fall phenomenon, and a plethora of college sports is played year round. If you can’t score tickets, or it’s too cold or rainy for even a die-hard Hokie fan, you can take cover at any of the sports bars. Friday night high school football in Blacksburg and Christiansburg provides local flavor and, occasionally, a glimpse of future collegiate players.

Bowling, golf, putt-putt, bicycling, hiking, walking, inline skating, jogging, even sitting still ~ it’s all here in Montgomery County. Pandapas Pond is a manmade lake with miles of trails that attracts birders, fishermen, hikers, bicyclists and horseback riders. Just over the county line, the Appalachian Trail, scenic byways, the Cascades, whitewater rafting, camping, canoeing and tons more of outdoor recreation opportunities await the outdoor enthusiast. 10

MontgomeryCC.org

Huckleberry Trail The Huckleberry Trail, a paved walking trail, runs 6plus miles through fields and woods between downtown Blacksburg and the New River Valley Mall in Christiansburg. You can watch a movie at the mall, then walk or bicycle to the Blacksburg Library at the other trail end to see if the book was better. Both towns have recreation and aquatic centers and generous activities through their parks and recreation departments.

Art & History

Art galleries, live theatre and concerts of all genres can be found year round in Montgomery County. Street fairs showcase fine and funky arts and crafts from all over the state and region, as well as music and food. Volunteer and non-profit activities are exhibited at booths to promote interest and awareness. The historic Lyric Theatre, circa 1930, (www.thelyric.com) and Theater 101 (part of Virginia Tech’s Theater Department, www. theatre.vt.edu) in downtown Blacksburg offer current movies, music presentations and live drama. The Starlite drive-in movie theater is open every summer in Christiansburg, and Regal Cinema operates a dozen movie theatres in its free-standing building next to the New River Valley Mall.

The Montgomery Museum and Lewis Miller Regional Art Gallery in Christiansburg, with its Meadowbrook Museum in Shawsville, displays artifacts and information that chronicle local history. A permanent art exhibit is complemented with local artists’ work which changes every two months. St. Luke and Odd Fellows Hall in Blacksburg are restored buildings; the latter was the community gathering place for African Americans in the town’s developing decades.

Historic Smithfield Plantation features interpreters in the dress of the day – late 1770s – and showcases comprehensive history during the house tour, gardens and grounds and a lovely gift shop. The Museum of Geological Sciences at Virginia Tech is housed in Derrick Hall, and Solitude, an historical building, stands sentry at the duck ponds on campus. The New River Heritage Organization (www.newriverheritage.org) focuses on the area’s history, as well as the State’s listing of historic sites in Montgomery County (www.nationalregisterofhistoricplaces. com/VA/Montgomery/districts.html). The Coal Miners Heritage Park is on the site of the former Merrimac Mine – its namesake, the ironclad Merrimac, used its coal during Civil War sea battles.

Businessin Montgomery County

Photo by Michael Kiernan

Entrepreneurs and established businesses alike find opportunities to grow in a supportive environment in Montgomery County. While the advantages of being in this area are appreciated by locals, they also receive national recognition. The Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center was named the “2010 Science/Research Park” by the Association of University Research Parks. Forbes Magazine ranked the Blacksburg, Christiansburg [and Radford, Va.] area 28th for “Best Small Place for Business and Careers.” U.S. News & World Report named Blacksburg a Top Ten “Best Affordable Mountain Town for Retirement” in 2010, and the previous year, the Blacksburg/Christiansburg Metropolitan Statistical Area rose to the 49th “Best-Performing Small City” by the Milken Institute. Blacksburg has been named 14th “Most Educated Small Town in America” at Forbes. com for 2009. The county has three industrial parks: Blacksburg Industrial Park, Christiansburg Industrial Park and Falling Branch Industrial Park. The Montgomery County Department of Economic Development is an excellent starting point for information on starting or expanding a business. Blacksburg Industrial Park is home to large companies, like Wolverine Gaskets and Federal-Mogul, both based in Michigan, as well as small firms and the Virginia Tech Transportation Institute, the largest research entity of the university. It’s within a day’s drive of two-thirds of the population of the United States, and considered to be a premier location for research and development, as well as manufacturing, companies. Falling Branch Industrial Park in Christiansburg is a 175-acre business park next to Interstate 81. Prestar Packaging, a small family-owned business which made and donated boxes for the flags given to New York’s 9/11 survivors and families, occupies space here. Backcountry.com is in the process of opening one of its catalog order facilities here. It is 30 minutes southwest of Roanoke, Va., and the Roanoke Regional Airport, and I-81 connects within an hour to I-77 and I-64, all major routes for moving goods, supplies and products. Christiansburg Industrial Park is a stone’s throw from I-81on 109 acres. 14

The park is zoned “general industrial” and has several local businesses in residence. Another general industrial park which is zoned for manufacturing in Montgomery County is the Elliston-Lafayette Industrial Park in the unincorporated community by the same name. The cooperative and collaborative nature of economic development in Montgomery County means that industrial park tenants can access the advantages of Virginia Tech’s proximity. They can participate in an industrial affiliate group to obtain research results on problems common to their industries. Companies can also sponsor research, use Virginia Tech research facilities and license and commercialize technologies developed by Virginia Tech researchers. The Virginia Tech Corporate Research Center is a 120-acre research and business park adjacent to campus and zoned “research and development” by the Town of Blacksburg. More than 140 technology-based companies and research centers employ 2,200 workers. The CRC has suites available for as short as one year and lots from 2 to 9 acres for lease with a term of up to 60 years. The Edward Via School of Osteopathic Medicine is in the CRC, and a second building phase will see 28 more buildings and approximately 3,000 additional employees. Several businesses ~ retail, industrial, mail order, research, manufacturing ~ are scattered throughout the county. The local workforce includes manufacturing people, craftsmen, college graduates, entrepreneurs, research geeks and a wide variety of skilled labor. The local shopping base includes the 100,000-plus population of the New River Valley as a whole, as well as tens of thousands more who journey to Montgomery County to visit events in the communities and on the college campuses. Downtown revitalization and enhancement efforts have made Christiansburg and Blacksburg attractive, pedestrian-friendly communities. Unique, local stores and nationally-recognized franchises provide shoppers an appealing blend of options. Entrepreneurs will find a willing hand from the county and possibilities for both niche and general markets.

Health Care

Two healthcare groups and many independent dentists and specialists serve Montgomery County residents: Carilion Clinic and LewisGale, part of the HCA Virginia Health System. Their facilities provide a superior combination of comprehensive care and medical technology, coupled with the personal touch of small-town folks and their healthcare providers. Montgomery County residents have access to Level I and Level III trauma centers, diagnostic imaging, digital cardiology system, emergency transport helicopter, genetic counseling, and a full service women’s center with sophisticated diagnostic and state-of-the-art evaluation and treatment options.

The diverse population in Montgomery County embraces a wide range of faiths and houses of worship. From small home church groups, reminiscent of early Christians, to formal and informal church memberships of more than 1,000, all faiths ~ and no faith ~ are well represented.

The local hospital, LewisGale Montgomery has Magnet™ status, the nation’s highest recognition in nursing excellence from the American Nurses Credentialing Center. To date, only five percent of hospitals in the country have achieved this distinction. It is also a Certified Quality Breast Center of Excellence by the National Consortium of Breast Centers, the highest level of certification available.

In a country where freedom of religion is guaranteed, it is imperative that county governments work well with all faithbased organizations with regard to their presence, building needs, security and other municipal concerns. Montgomery County respects all people and seeks to protect everyone who resides and worships within its boundaries.

Residents who want to take care of themselves proactively will find gyms, fitness centers, personal trainers and classes in a variety of activities. Dentists, ophthalmologists and optometrists are widely accessible. Dermatology specialists, including those offering cosmetic treatments, are also available. Alternative and complementary approaches to healthcare, such as acupuncture, chiropractic treatment, massage therapy, meditation, Reiki, mental health services, physical therapy and yoga can be found all over Montgomery County. Seniors have several choices which support active lifestyles and aging in place. Retirement communities are designed with senior needs in mind. Independent living through nursing care are available, along with rehabilitative services and hospice care. 16

The protestants are well-represented by denomination, as well as non-denominational entities. St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Friends Meeting – Quakers, Unitarian Church, Seventh Day Adventist Church, Mennonite Fellowship, Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, African Methodist Episcopal, St. Francis Anglican and others exist alongside the Jewish synagogue and Islamic temple. Additionally, there are several campus ministries and faithbased educational seminars, special events and musical presentations. The kindness and strong community spirit among residents rises high in times of need. Several charities are sponsored by these various church bodies. Montgomery County stands proud with its residents that we care for not only for each one’s church family, but also for our neighbors, business people, children and needy folks among us.

The foundation for the region’s higher education opportunities at New River Community College, Radford University and Virginia Tech is laid in the K12 years, and Montgomery County provides a solid base for all its students. Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) serves 393 square miles and includes not only the towns of Christiansburg and Blacksburg but also rural communities such as Prices Fork, Riner, Plum Creek, Elliston and Shawsville. The County has committed to new schools in Blacksburg, Auburn and Prices Fork and a renovation for Auburn Middle School. This is a continuation of the school board’s Capital Improvements Plan, which has set the county upon its course of having state-of-the-art educational facilities for its 9,700 K-12 students. A total of 12 elementary schools, four middle, four high and two secondary alternative schools serve the County’s four attendance areas. The mission of Montgomery County Public Schools is “to be a community of excellence that develops each student’s full potential to be a lifelong learner and a productive global citizen.” The senior high school classes graduate more than 90 percent of the students, and several have been National Merit Commended Scholars or finalists. Montgomery County students receive a cumulative millions of dollars in college scholarship money and are sought after by institutions of higher learning. Private education is another option. The New School, a parent-teacher cooperative, is committed to academic and civic excellence, to individual and community responsibility and to the love of learning. Tall Oaks Montessori provides a curriculum and multi-year classroom setting based on Maria Montessori’s philosophy that “the child’s play is [his] work.” The mission statement for St. John Neumann Academy ~ preschool and K-8 ~ states it is “committed to providing an academic and faith-filled environment in the Catholic tradition.” Pathway Christian Academy’s mission is “to partner with the home and church to build a solid foundation in the life of each student.” Dayspring Christian Academy instructs K-12 in “preparing life-long learners for growth in faith and knowledge.” Gateway Christian School provides a Bible-based education, realizing that “a three-fold chord is not easily broken.” Their philosophy is that Christian education begins in the home, while church and school work hand-in-hand with parents to “train up a child.” Additionally, several well-regarded preschools and day care centers, including both child and adult day services at Virginia Tech, serve families throughout Montgomery County. 18

Nature Areas

Caldwell Fields: Campers have favored this area for years; reservations can be made by contacting the Eastern Divide Ranger District of the USDA Forest Service, (540) 552-4641 The Cascades: Found in neighboring Giles County, this 69-foot waterfall is reached via a not-too-strenuous 4-mile hike along little Stoney Creek, or a more accessible wide gravel trail. http:// gilescounty.org/cascades.html Catawba Road: A scenic byway that runs through Montgomery County. It passes pastoral landscapes, including historic buildings, mills, a tanyard, a brick kiln, 19th-century churches and an early 20th-century school. The Catawba Road is also part of the TransAmerica Bikeway. Duck Pond: Located on Virginia Tech’s campus, students and residents alike enjoy feeding geese and, of course, ducks around this man-made pond. It’s particularly popular in the spring when the cherry trees bloom. Solitude (historic sites) overlooks the Duck Pond, and Historic Smithfield Plantation is less than a mile away. Ellett Valley Nature Trail: Located off Jennelle Road, this onemile loop trail has information about local flora and fauna along its route. Easy and fun with kids.

The New River: An area highlight, the New River is second in age only to the Nile River and is also one of the rare rivers that flows north. Most everyone finds something to enjoy about the New: canoeing, kayaking, fishing, swimming, wading or just plain old hanging out with a picnic.

Heritage Park: 169 acres for hiking, wildlife watching, and picnicking. 2300 Glade Road, Blacksburg.

New River Junction: Rent canoes, inner tubes, and kayaks here. http://www.newriverjunction.com/
