animal-clinicChatham has long been a crossroad for commerce. As the County seat, it also serves as a strong government center. These two aspects have kept Chatham strong and economically vibrant.

While the Town found its initial wealth in tobacco from the fields of Pittsylvania County, it has incorporated manufacturing, a healthy retail base and private education to its economic portfolio since its founding. Like many small towns, Chatham was also once served by active railroad depot.

Currently, the Town works towards building economy and jobs in the community. Chatham's downtown retail area is growing and currently maintains four restaurants. Chatham's stable water supply, easy transportation access and the Pittsylvania County's general low cost of living provide strong economic advantages for business development.
