The Merchants Association of Gretna would like to thank you for your interest in our community. Whether you’re a visitor, new resident or business, you’ll find a host of amenities that make Gretna a truly great place to live, work and visit.

Gretna is a thriving home town that changes to build a future such as our schools, library, rescue squad, fire department, industries, businesses (some as unique as our new movie theatre), restaurants, hotel, bed and breakfasts, medical facilities, professional offices, parks, health care facility, churches, a shopping center, cemeteries, and organizations that schedule activities for our residents and visiting guests. We are located on Route 29 between Danville (approximately 25 miles) and Lynchburg (approximately 40 miles) as well as on Route 40 about 50 miles east of Roanoke, Virginia. We also are within a short drive to the beautiful Smith Mountain Lake, Leesville Lake and the Blue Ridge Parkway.

Visitors and residents alike experience our town through our merchants, churches, civic groups, youth sports and a variety of festivals and events. We invite you to explore our web site and familiarize yourself with the beautiful, exciting place we call home.

Please feel free to give us a call and let us help you with plans to visit Pittsylvania County and especially Gretna. Our town motto is “Gretna, VA – ain’t no big thing, but it’s growing” and this is absolutely true. If you can only stop for a meal break or a day’s visit or if you decide to come here for a lifetime, we will make you feel right at home and you’ll be glad that you put Gretna, Virginia on your list of places to stop and visit.

We hope that you will plan on coming to visit us in person real soon!
