The mission of Big Stone Gap is to promote and maintain quality of living by providing quality services and facilities to and for its citizens, businesses, institutions, and visitors.
Our Town is a mixture of Southern culture and Appalachian heritage preserving our past and striving to develop our future with all available technology. This is evidenced by our several museums and historical sites, Virginia’s outdoor drama, “The Trail of the Lonesome Pine”, parks and recreation, quality of public education, community college, and advancing use of technology in our commercial and industrial uses.
This mission shall be accomplished with respect, competency, and compassion toward everyone. Citizens and visitors are invited to become a part of our town’s mission.
