Rockingham County is facing forward toward a bright future. Strategically situated, just North of the rapidly-expanding Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina and just South of Virginia's beautiful Shenandoah Valley, Rockingham County is a combination of the best aspects of a rich historical background and tradition with a wealth of natural, human, and economic resources. The county figures prominently in the history of the state of North Carolina, as well as in the emerging economic and cultural tradition of the foothills region.

Rockingham County has proven to be a highly attractive location for business and industry through its proximity to interstates, international airports, sporting events, and cultural amenities offered by the Piedmont Triad area. Rockingham County is anchored by the small cities of Eden, Reidsville, Madison, Mayodan, Stoneville, Wentworth, and Ruffin. A number of smaller communities dot the countryside with town-like advantages. All exhibit the strong sense of community and family common to this part of North Carolina, and all enjoy a high standard of living with a safe and secure working environment.
