About the Property:

Outdoor enthusiasts, hunters, anglers, and investors, take notice! Running the valley along Shooting Creek to peak elevations around 2,600’, this exceptional 329-acre property in southwest Virginia offers a rare opportunity to own a significant piece of the state's past. Steeped in moonshining history with an old homesite and whispers of a hidden cave, the land beckons exploration and awaits your vision.

Undeveloped and having the same owner for the last 25+ years, this property presents a blank canvas to make it your own. Over a half-mile of frontage on the picturesque Shooting Creek provides endless opportunities for recreation, from fishing to simply enjoying the sounds of water dancing over the rocks. A lush hardwood forest heavily comprised of oak, hickory, and poplar has sat seemingly untouched for 30+ years and offers a great timber resource and stunning scenery. Developed ATV/UTV trails allow you to easily explore the property's diverse terrain from top to bottom while “stopping to smell the roses” (literally) or foraging for wild berries on the brambles of berry bushes you’ll find dotted throughout the landscape.

Running just south of the Eastern Continental Divide, the significant elevation changes, ranging from 1,600’ along Shooting Creek to over 2,600’ at the mountain peakline, create a unique landscape with breathtaking vistas and diverse microclimate, while dramatic rock outcroppings add a unique geological element to the landscape. Abundant wildlife sign, including deer and turkey, expose a thriving ecosystem on the mountain.

Multiple potential sites overlooking Shooting Creek offer dream cabin settings, allowing you to wake up to the sound of cascading waterfalls. Or build higher up to enjoy breathtaking vistas of the surrounding peaks and valleys. The option is yours!

A portion of the property rests in Floyd County, with the remainder in Franklin County, allowing you to choose which county you’ll call home. This positioning places you just minutes from the world-renowned Blue Ridge Parkway and nationally-recognized town of Floyd, offering scenic drives, charming small-town hospitality, and endless outdoor adventures. Convenient paved road frontage ensures easy access to the property.

This unique property offers potential for a variety of uses, including residential development, hunting, timber investment, outdoor adventure park, or simply a private escape. It’s currently in a land use program for added tax benefits!

Close proximity to vibrant towns like Floyd & Rocky Mount, renowned wineries like Chateau Morrisette & Villa Appalacia, the luxurious Primland Auberge Resort, the energetic Virginia Tech campus in Blacksburg, & the Roanoke Valley provides a wealth of options for dining, entertainment, & cultural experiences. 

Don't miss out on this chance to own a piece of history!

  • Discover Old Moonshine Stills Along “Shootin’ Creek”:  If Franklin County, Virginia was the so-called “Moonshine Capital” of the world during Prohibition in the 1920’s, then Shootin’ Creek – located in the southwest corner of the county – might qualify as the “Moonshine Capital” of Franklin County. In T. Keister Greer’s book, “THE GREAT MOONSHINE  CONSPIRACY TRIAL OF 1935,” he mentions Shootin’ Creek no less than eight times as a center of moonshining and revenuer raids.  One revenue agent testified to cutting up more than 30 moonshine stills at Shootin’ Creek in a space of 90 days.
