Get To Know Jonesville

Jonesville is a town and county seat of Lee County, Virginia. In the late 1800s and early 1900, it was a thriving center of local commerce. However, when the coal boom receded in the late-1900s, the town economy declined gradually. Most of the commercial real estate was left unoccupied and underutilized. In 2004, one of the oldest remaining downtown businesses, Jonesville Drug, moved to the former Chappell's Dairy site on the west side of the town. Today, most of the commercial activity for Jonesville is located there.
