People tend to spend their whole lives here. Communication amongst neighbors in this area is small, or close to none. From time to time there is a community event called Duffield Daze. People within the community set out small shops in town and set up food stands while music from a band is playing. There is large participation in that event.

The area is breathtaking with a beautiful mountain view. The people are nice and honest. Gas prices are also very affordable with low income jobs. Overall, Duffield, VA is a great place to live
Me personally I love it here in Bristol, Va. It's a good place to live, because most people are nice and we are starting to get new restaurants and tourism places suck as bass pro and cabela's and places to give people something to go do. It's overall a good place to love from the people that love here to the different weather in all four seasons of the year.
