Highland County Land and Farms

Highland County land and farms are a perfect opportunity for investors, businesses and sportspeople looking for a rural setting, low taxes, skilled labor and uniqueness. Land in Highland County is bordered by Augusta and Bath counties in Virginia and Pendleton and Pocahontas counties in West Virginia. The 416-square-mile county is in the Appalachian region and has 2,210 residents, the lowest in the state. It has one of the highest mean elevations east of the Mississippi. Farming and timbering provide a significant portion of the economic base. Farmland encompasses 92,950 acres.  Livestock and poultry are 93% of agricultural sales, and wool and lambs are a large part of that. Fishermen and hunters find almost unlimited access to fish and wildlife game. Protected areas include parts of the George Washington National Forest as well as Highland Wildlife Management Area. Bullpasture, Cowpasture and South Fork Potomac rivers meander through the mountains. The county is in the US National Radio Quiet Zone that limits radio activity to minimize interference with the Green Bank Telescope and the Sugar Grove Station. The exhibits at Highland County Museum & Heritage Center feature the history of Highland County and of the Battle of McDowell during the American Civil War. Highland County Maple Festival is held annually and attracts more than 60,000 people to the county. Highland County Public Schools provides K-12 public education.
