Carroll County sits in southwestern Virginia in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in the Blue Ridge Highlands region of southwest Virginia. The North Carolina state line forms the southern boundary of the county.

Named for Charles Carroll, the longest-lived signer of the Declaration of Independence, the county is primarily agricultural, but its roots go deep into the music of the mountains. Carroll County is one of the major counties along The Crooked Road: Virginia's Heritage Music Trail. Jam sessions are offered somewhere almost every night of the week, and admission is usually free. And the town of Galax is partly in Carroll County. It is the home of the oldest, continuous Old Fiddlers Convention that takes place every August.

Some 25 miles of the famous Blue Ridge Parkway runs through the southern section of the county with spectacular overlooks as well as nature preserves and New River Trail State Park.

The Carroll County Courthouse in Hillsville was the scene of a tragic shootout in 1912 that caught the attention of the nation, and story tours are offered by the historical society.
