Most People Don’t Know These 12 Super Tiny Towns In Virginia Exist

We’ve talked a lot about small towns lately – and the general consensus is that “small” is a VERY subjective term. Some people consider anything with less than 50,000 people small, while others from towns with populations in the hundreds remind us what “small” really looks like. So we thought it might be fun to take a look at some of the smallest towns in Virginia.

Using census reports provided by City-Data, a leading resource for census, income and residential data for cities and towns around the country, we found that there are more than 180 towns in Virginia with a population less than 1,000. That’s a whole lotta little! With so many to choose from, it’s impossible to bring you information on all of them, so instead, we’re taking a look at a few of our favorites. With populations ranging from just over 200 to almost 1,000, these towns are worth the visit – just don’t blink or you might miss them.

Like I mentioned at the beginning, there are dozens more small towns that aren’t on the list. And because some of them are so small, there’s not much information about them. Do you live in a town with fewer than 1,000 people? If so, let us know about it in the comments below!
