Visitor Center Celebrates 10 Years

Visitor Center Celebrates 10 Years

March 2, 2018

Martinsville, VA (March 2, 2018) The Martinsville-Henry County Visitor Center became state certified through the Virginia Tourism Corporation in March of 2008. Since then, the Visitor Center has been dedicated to educating tourists and locals about the many attractions and amenities in our area.

The MHC Tourism Office has greeted tens of thousands of visitors, from every state in the U.S., as well as visitors from over 33 countries! In addition to our primary goal of providing local information, being state certified means that we also carry information on many other locations throughout the state of Virginia. Therefore, whether you are a visitor or resident, we have helpful information on travelling Virginia as well as a small amount of travel information on North Carolina, too!

The MHC Visitor Center and Tourism Division, #VisitMartinsville, expand the marketing efforts of local attractions throughout the community, state, and nation. Locally, we distribute information throughout the community, attend special events with mobile visitor center sites, and host events at the Visitor Center such as special performances and appearances to promote the ways to have fun in record time in Martinsville-Henry County.

On the state level, the visitor center promotes our local amenities through the Virginia is for Lovers website and publications, exclusive window clings at select state welcome centers, and Martinsville-Henry County brochure distribution throughout visitor and welcome centers all around the state of Virginia.

On a local, state, and national level, our office leverages the area through a variety of print publications, digital, through our website, television outlets, and social media outlets.
