WHAT IS THE CHAMBER OF COMMERCE? The Chamber of Commerce is a business network and plays an important role in any area, but in a rural community that role becomes vital. With political power and resources at the state level slipping further and further away from rural communities, it is increasingly clear that we must take greater responsibility for the future of the Farmville area ourselves. This means teamwork; working as partners with local government, businesses and citizens to invest our time, talent and energy in this great place we call home.

MISSION STATEMENT The Farmville Area Chamber of Commerce exists to improve the quality of life of those living and doing business in the community by working in partnership with its membership and local government.

Our area, known as Virginia’s Heartland, is rich in history that tells a story of courage and perseverance. Located in the Heart of Virginia, the Farmville Area includes the Town of Farmville, the County of Cumberland, and the County of Prince Edward. Prince Edward County dates to 1754, Cumberland County to 1749, and the Town of Farmville to 1798. Farmville soon became the center of trade, education, law, and finance for the surrounding seven counties, a position it maintains today, as the largest municipality between Richmond and Lynchburg. It is home to many successful businesses, industries, and cultural and educational organizations. Hampden-Sydney College, a selective private four-year college, was founded in 1776; Longwood University, chartered in 1839 as Farmville Female Seminary, was the first state teacher training college in the Commonwealth of Virginia.

Patrick Henry, five-time Governor of Virginia, served as Prince Edward’s representative in the Virginia General Assembly. As the county’s representative, he participated with John Randolph in debates over the ratification of the U.S. Constitution.

The first call for independence came from Cumberland County – when the certainty of the approaching conflict came, Cumberland led the Colonies in calling for a completely independent American nation. On April 22, 1776, from the balcony of Effingham Tavern, Carter H. Harrison read the Committee’s instructions to the county delegates to the State convention: “We therefore, your constituents, instruct you positively to declare for an Independency, that you solemnly abjure any allegiance to His Britannic Majesty and bid him a good night forever …” The Virginia Convention decided to follow Cumberland’s lead, and this resulted in the Virginian Resolutions, which were presented to the Continental Congress and embodied in the Declaration of Independence. The Civil War left its mark on Farmville, with its last major battle at nearby Sailor’s Creek. Lee retreated directly through the town, and the Confederates crossed and then attempted to burn the railroad's impressive High Bridge, a 120-foot-high, nearly half-mile-long span across the Appomattox River. The bridge and other sites along Lee’s Retreat are part of the state’s Civil War Trails.

Page 11

Farmville is also home to some key players in the early fight for civil rights; its citizens’ crusade for equal rights in education drew Martin Luther King, Jr. and other national leaders to visit our area. The Robert Russa Moton High School, site of the 1951 student strike, is a National Historic Landmark, a civil rights museum, and the centerpiece of Virginia’s Civil Rights in Education Heritage Trail, honoring the efforts of local students and citizens who paved the way for integrated public education nationwide. After 250 years, our area continues to exemplify all that is best about the American way of life. Seven historic buildings and two historic districts in the County of Prince Edward are listed on the Virginia Register of Historic Places: • Briery Church was constructed in 1760 and was the first structure in Prince Edward to be listed on the Virginia Historic Register. (Route 747 – Briery Church Road) • Debtor’s Prison, a small, solid log jail for debtors was built in 1787. (Route 15 – Farmville Road) • Old Prince Edward County Clerk’s Office, now known as Worsham Clerk’s Office, served as the first clerk’s office at Prince Edward Courthouse. (Route 15 – Farmville Road) • Falkland, a large, framed plantation house was built in 1815 by the Watkins family, important figures in the early history of Prince Edward County and Hampden-Sydney College. (Route 632 – Falkland Road) • Buffalo Presbyterian Church, 1804 HISTORY

• Farmville Historic District, 1830-1930 • Hampden Sydney- College Historic District, 1756-1840 • Longwood House 1811

HAMPDEN-SYDNEY COLLEGE

A FOUNDATION OF EXCELLENCE

Hampden-Sydney College is a private, selective liberal arts college for men, enrolling just over 1,100 students. The 1,330-acre campus has the flavor of an academic village mixing academic buildings, student residence halls, and faculty and staff homes within easy walking distance. Broad lawns and historic buildings complement an 83,000-square-foot research library with 230,000 volumes and 3,100 periodicals, an electronic communications center, optical fiber and wireless computer networks, electronic classrooms and an astronomical observatory. It offers 24 majors, 24 minors, and programs for pre-medicine, pre-law, pre-business, pre-engineering, preministry, and leadership studies as well as internships and study abroad. The faculty-student ratio is 1:11; students often work closely with their professors to conduct – and publish – independent research. The natural sciences and many other disciplines emphasize real-life conditions for learning. Several of the sports teams are routinely nationally-ranked, and the athletics program is designed to offer every student a chance to compete. The Princeton Review has ranked Hampden-Sydney among the top schools in the nation in academics, student political involvement, quality of life, availability of professors and town-gown relationships. Since 1775, Hampden-Sydney has produced leaders in every field of endeavor. One alumnus in 10 is owner, president or CEO of a company; another one in 10 is a lawyer, doctor or similar professional. On the basis of the success of its graduates, the College remains committed to the belief that a liberal arts education provides the best foundation not only for a professional career, but also for the moral and intellectual challenges of life. The College’s student-enforced Honor Code upholds the atmosphere of trust and mutual respect essential to an academic community. Here students learn that the pursuit of truth is a lifelong endeavor, requiring clarity and objectivity of thought, a sensitive moral conscience, consideration for others and dedication to responsible citizenship.

LONGWOOD UNIVERSITY Longwood University is Virginia’s third-oldest public university, preceded only by the founding of College of William & Mary and the University of Virginia, and is one of the 100 oldest colleges and universities in the country. Founded in 1839, Longwood today offers more than 100 majors, minors and concentrations to more than 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students, with a proud emphasis on small classes, human-scale learning and the highest proportion of classes taught by full-time faculty of

any Virginia public university. Its mission, infused throughout the curriculum and extracurricular life, is the preparation of citizen leaders. Founded in 1839 as the Farmville Female Seminary Association, the institution had a series of names over its early history, becoming Longwood College in 1949 and turning fully co-educational in 1976. In 2002, Gov. Mark Warner signed legislation designating Longwood a university. In 2007, Longwood began competing in NCAA Division I athletics. The university is a member of the Big South Conference. Longwood students are known for their commitment to campus leadership in extracurricular life. There are more than 125 campus organizations, including active programs in sports and the arts, and a vibrant, service-oriented Greek system (four national sororities were founded at Longwood). Most students live on or close to the university’s bucolic central campus, which – combined with the relatively small scale of about 1,100 students in each entering class – contributes to the look and feel of a private college with the cost and scope of a public institution.

Academically, Longwood takes pride in its historical roots – exceptional and widely honored programs in teacher preparation – and today its excellence has expanded across a comprehensive curriculum.

President W. Taylor Reveley IV, who took office in June 2013, has emphasized a strong grounding in the liberal arts and sciences as the heart of the academic enterprise and an essential element of the curriculum for all students, but many students major in professional programs such as business, athletic training and nursing. President Reveley is Longwood’s 26th president. His father, W. Taylor Reveley III, is president of the College of William & Mary, and his grandfather, W. Taylor Reveley II, was president of Hampden-Sydney from 1963-77. A FOUNDATION OF EXCELLENCE

One of the remarkable facts of Longwood’s history is its close connection to two transcendent historical events. The Civil War ended practically at one end of campus, with some of the last fighting of the Civil War taking place at High Bridge, a few miles outside town. Nearly a century later, the modern civil rights movement arguably began, also just a few steps from campus, with the strike by students at Moton High School against Southside Virginia Community College: Success Starts Here! conditions at their segregated school.

Residents of Cumberland, Farmville, and Prince Edward have a rich history of generosity, philanthropy and kind-heartedness. Each year, area businesses donate to worthy causes such as health care for children in need, providing shelter for battered women and children, and feeding the hungry. Individuals volunteer countless hours to tutor at-risk schoolchildren, provide food and assistance to elderly shut-ins and counsel those battling substance abuse problems. Students from area schools, Hampden-Sydney College and Longwood University, also assist in a wide variety of community service activities. Over 80-community organizations work to improve the community’s quality of life and they could certainly use your help in doing so. These organizations work to provide affordable housing for working-class residents, clean and protect the region’s scenic waterways and raise money to fight a variety of debilitating illnesses. The Farmville Area Chamber of Commerce, Farmville Downtown Partnership, Town of Farmville, and Prince Edward County have come together to form a new key group called THOYA (The Heart of Your Adventure). THOYA works hard to promote our area through its rich history, outdoor adventures, hospitality, shopping, culture and more.

The Farmville area has many houses of worship, representing a wide variety of denominations and faiths. Freedom of religion is cherished in in our area because of Virginia’s history as a sanctuary for people fleeing repression. Several early non-establishment churches, like Cub Creek Presbyterian Church, were started in our area in the late 1700s. You will find hundreds of churches and houses of worship representing dozens of faiths. Many of our churches are centers not only for the religious life of area residents, but are also architectural treasures. Their congregations add to the close-knit sense of community valued by our residents. In addition, many support the Farmville-Prince Edward-Cumberland community at large in invaluable ways, offering support groups and outreach programs that touch residents regardless of their religious beliefs and practices. Both institutions of higher learning offer religious groups for students, allowing them to worship and complete service projects with their peers at times that coordinate with their schedules.

For that extra touch that makes all the difference, turn to...

The Heart of Your Adventure (THOYA) collaboration is making great things happen in the area! No matter what your sense of “Adventure” may be – the Farmville Community has it ready and waiting for you! THOYA is composed of representatives from: The Farmville Area Chamber of Commerce, The Town of Farmville, Prince Edward County Tourism, and Farmville Downtown Partnership. In early 2015 they proudly had a LOVEworks sculpture constructed for all citizens and visitors to enjoy and use for taking fun photos. This is the 40th LOVE sculpture of its kind in Virginia, and we certainly think it is the BEST! Farmville’s sculpture depicts the High Bridge, which was the site of one of the last battles of the American Civil War, with trains from both the Union and Confederacy poised on its tracks. It includes an inlaid 1918 Sanborn Fire Insurance map reproduction of downtown Farmville. It was constructed of locally hewn and crafted materials and assembled on site.

THE LAST STAND: e Civil War Comes to Farmville Our LOVEworks sculpture in Downtown Farmville, located just off the High Bridge Trail, beside Green Front Furniture’s Building #10 on Main Street.

Before Appomattox, there was Farmville. Still reeling from the Battle of Sailor’s Creek, General Robert E. Lee and his men in gray moved westward to this town in the Heart of Virginia to be ready for a last stand against the forces of General Ulysses S. Grant.

LOVEWORKS

The Last Stand: The Civil War Comes to Farmville transported all who attend the Sesquicentennial event in March, 2015, back to that day in 1865 when soldiers from both sides of the conflict converged on this south central Virginia town en route to the final surrender. We met Generals Lee and Grant and the men who fought in Blue and Gray. A walking tour of sites central to this pivotal day between High Bridge and Appomattox was rolled out for the first time. Then there were the women who survived the valiant last days as they buried their dead in the Confederate Cemetery.
