Welcome To The Alleghany Highlands

The Alleghany Highlands offers an extraordinary quality of life for its residents and an exceptional range of opportunities for visitors. The Alleghany Highlands Chamber of Commerce and Tourism strives to enhance both by fostering a healthy business environment and promoting economic growth.

The Chamber is the unifying voice for businesses in Clifton Forge, Covington, Selma, Iron Gate, Low Moor and other parts of Alleghany County, as well as neighboring communities that do business in the Alleghany Highlands.

Since 1906, the Chamber has served the community as an action-oriented organization that has emerged as the leading advocate for commerce in the Alleghany Highlands. The chamber continues the tradition through innovative programs in the areas of business development, communications, awards, education, governmental advocacy and tourism promotion.
