Located in the Piedmont, Fluvanna County land is adjacent to Louisa, Goochland, Cumberland, Buckingham and Albemarle counties. The 290-square-mile county has a population of 22,270. There is access to I-81, I-95 and I-64 in addition to railroads that service Fluvanna, and it’s within easy driving distance of the Charlotteville-Albemarle Airport and the Richmond International Airport.

Natural resources attract visitors year-round. White tail deer, turkeys and small game can be hunted on both public and private land.
