Nelson County Fact Sheet

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Nelson County balances economic growth with its exceptional natural beauty.  This balance is exemplified by the world class breweries and wineries that flourish in Nelson County and Wintergreen Ski Resort.  Nelson County is also home to manufacturers, such as California Sidecar, which leverage Nelson County’s transportation infrastructure and business climate to manufacture goods and ship them across the US and abroad. 

Unlike many rural counties, Nelson County residents and businesses have access to 450 miles of a high-speed fiber optic network.  This network runs through the center of the County, offering high-speed internet to many businesses and to the Colleen Business Park.  This fiber optic network brings the benefits of advanced information technology infrastructure to Nelson County’s idyllic pastoral setting. 

Nelson is the ideal location for companies seeking to do business in the midst of incredible natural beauty without sacrificing access to transportation infrastructure and a skilled workforce.
