It's been an okay place to grow up, nothing special but nothing poor about it. Education has been good but isn't easy as it is a small county with limited connections. Is slowly growing but still very rural.

The Homeschool community in Powhatan is great. The safety and privacy is comforting. If you like having no neighbors, this is the place for you. P.S. Don’t drive on the roads past 10pm.
I love this town! It is a small town and most everyone knows one another. We all look out for each other and our community is close and strong
