Welcome to Hurt! We appreciate your interest in our community. To help you get to know us better, we have published a wide variety of useful information here on our official town website. We hope you will find this site informative, helpful, and user-friendly.
As a brief introduction… Hurt is a congenial, family-oriented town of approximately 1,300 citizens located at the northern end of Pittsylvania County. We are separated from the adjoining larger town of Altavista only by the Roanoke (Staunton) River. We are home to people of all ages with a considerable range of demographics and interests.
While Hurt is predominantly residential at this time (a result of the economic downturn and the departure of manufacturing since the turn of the century), we eagerly desire and are actively pursuing economic development/community revitalization as a top priority. Our focus is on development of the Southern Virginia Multimodal Park, and considering the challenges that most localities face in effecting commercial growth, our town recognizes the importance of taking a regional approach.
Thus, we are nearly complete in formation of the soon-to-be Staunton River Regional Industrial Facility Authority (SRRIFA) in partnership with adjacent localities (see our Economic Development page). Hurt also maintains active membership in both the Virginia Municipal League and the Danville-Pittsylvania County Chamber of Commerce.
