Chase City is a very small town. There isn’t very much to do around here unless you want to go to local diners and/or restaurants. Chase City is also a very poor town. Lots of people pass through, but not many people live here.

Chase City is a small town with older schools. We are located close to hospitals and John H. Kerr Lake and dam. We go camping and shopping often. I like it here because it's not that far from shopping centers and recreation.
Honestly, Chase City is one of the greatest places in Mecklenburg County. The people are great. The environment is fantastic. I could go on and on. But just like everything else in life, it could always be better.
