South Hill has a variety of attractions for visitors of all ages.


Model Railroad Museum
201 S. Mecklenburg Avenue / (434) 447-4547 / 9 AM - 4 PM
Located at the corner of South Mecklenburg Avenue and Main Street in the historic South Hill Train Depot, which also houses the South Hill Chamber of Commerce offices. A unique and panoramic display of model trains and authentic model scenery representing periods of the local history. The train museum is located in the rear section of the original freight station of the Depot where all the items that came to South Hill by rail were stored until picked up by farmers, residents and businessmen. You can even visit an authentic caboose located on the Depot grounds.

Live performances and art showings are at The Colonial Center for Performing Arts , one of the few remaining vaudeville theatres of its era in Virginia.

South Hill is privileged to have various groups including the Friends of the R. T. Arnold Library, the South Hill Chamber of Commerce, the South Hill Revitalization Committee, The Colonial Center and our many civic organizations that arrange a variety of entertaining events throughout the year.

There's always something going on in South Hill!
