A Relaxed Lifestyle

Blending old-fashioned charm with progressive economic development policies, Saltville offers residents a relaxed lifestyle, a strong sense of community, and a highly skilled workforce with an excellent work ethic.

Rich in history, delightful Southern charm and old-fashioned hospitality, the Town of Saltville is located in Southwest Virginia, on the border of Smyth and Washington Counties. We are 10 minutes off of Interstate 81 (Exit 35 via Route 107 or Exit 29 via Route 91), an easy, scenic drive through the mountains. Saltville was the Confederacy’s main source of salt during the War Between the States. From prehistoric animals and earliest humans to mankind’s landing on the moon, Saltville offers a fascinating window into Southwest Virginia’s natural attractions such as the Museum of the Middle Appalachians.
