About Brookneal

The Town of Brookneal is located on US Route 501 in southeastern Campbell County and has since its founding in 1802 served as a center of commerce for the surrounding areas in Campbell, Charlotte and Halifax counties. Brookneal is an incorporated town with a population of approximately 1,250 and serving approximately 40,000 in the immediate area. The thriving economy includes a diversified manufacturing base, agriculture, service firms and retail offerings.

Brookneal is a full service town with comprehensive planning, zoning, water and sewer, sanitation service and police. Fire and Rescue services are provided by the Brookneal Volunteer Fire Department and the Brookneal Volunteer Rescue Squad. Public Safety dispatch and coordination of police coverage is provided through integration into the county’s 911 system.

Excellent recreational opportunities abound in the area. Public facilities include a large recreation park, a boat ramp on the Staunton River and a historic community center.

The town is also the birthplace of General Lewis Pick, builder of the Leds Road in the China Burma India Theater of World War II; and it is near Patrick Henry's last home and burial site, Red Hill.  Henry is best known for his famous declaration "give me liberty or give me death" made during a speech before the Virginia Convention in 1775. Red Hill is also the site of the National Memorial and on these grounds, guests can tour the restored home and law office, as well as walk where Henry and his ancestors once walked.
