Jobs in Blacksburg, Virginia, United States

The Commander of Fort Henry had tasked two explorers — Fallam and Batts to explore the area beyond the Allegheny Mountains. In 1671, the party claimed the present-day land of Blacksburg in honor of King Charles II. Although it wasn’t until the late 18th century that the area began to populate, thanks to the land bought by Samuel Black who constructed a grid of streets called — “The Old Sixteen Squares”.

The Presbyterians arrived in 1830 and constructed a church made of bricks in the area and the first educational facility was established in 1840 — the Blacksburg Female Academy. Soon other establishments followed such as the first bank “Blacksburg Savings Institution” and the first newspaper — “Montgomery Messenger”. The town was officially incorporated in 1871 with Thomas W. Jones taking the role of the first mayor.

Currently, Blacksburg is a town with a population count of 45,038, according to the census. The town experiences a mountain climate with warm summers due to the elevated location.
