Virginia's Growth Alliance is located in the southeastern portion of the Southern Piedmont region of Virginia.

The region is bordered on the south by Lake Gaston, Buggs Island Lake, and the state of North Carolina.

This 4,400-square mile region has a strong agricultural heritage and rich forest resources, but in recent years manufacturing activity and service-related industries have prospered. With vast woodlands, abundant mineral resources, a plentiful water supply, and easy accessibility to metro areas in all directions, the region offers extensive economic development opportunities.

The town of South Hill is 75 miles southwest of Richmond, the state capital; 180 miles south of Washington D.C. ; and 115 miles west of Norfolk.
