Live in a garden spot
Some residents refer to Charles City as “the garden spot of the universe.” Needless-to-say they consider it a great place to live. Most of the county is undeveloped, and the population numbers about 7,000 residents. The courthouse area constitutes the county center. Schools, government offices, libraries, a bank, doctor’s office and post office are all located there. Four country stores sell food and gas. The Roxbury Industrial Park is home to a number of small and medium-sized businesses.
County residents join together in a variety of organizations to help, to recreate and to share. Please join us!
