Pocahontas Vision:

Pocahontas Town AdministrationThe future of Pocahontas reflects the community’s unique past. This historic Southwest Virginia mining town will capitalize on its legacy of population diversity and architectural heritage and the brand identity of Pocahontas coal in a celebration of the important role the community played in fueling the progress of Twentieth century America.

By prioritizing achievable rehabilitation efforts with revenue generation potential and packaging a suite of existing and planned recreational and quality-of-life assets, Pocahontas will become an important partner in regional tourism efforts.

The revitalized town will offer residents and visitors an engaging experience in an authentic community, at once reminiscent of its frontier town past and optimistically engaged in its own progressive advances.
