Located in the heart of Southwest Virginia’s New River Valley, in the Blue Ridge Mountain foothills, our small city has been offering an attractive lifestyle for its residents since early settlers arrived in 1750.
Nestled in a large bend in the New River, Radford covers approximately 9.63square miles and is a diverse city full of commercial and recreational potential. The river not only provides the city with a variety of recreational opportunities, but also with a near unlimited supply of water for residential and industrial uses.
Home of two former governors. Radford’s small town quality offers some big city cultural and educational opportunities. Although located in an unspoiled area of low population density, Radford’s proximity to Interstate 81 (2 mi.) allows the world easy access to our educational, commercial and industrial resources.
Rich in opportunity, energy, and beauty, Radford is ideally located along Interstate 81 with easy accessibility to Interstate 77. Excellent transportation via air, rail, and freight allows for easy transportation of products. Prime industrial, commercial, and office sites are currently available, all with beautiful vistas in which to live and play. Industrial shell building projects are on going.
