History

Pamplin is the home of a Clay Pipe Factory, formerly the largest clay pipe factory in the United States. It is located to the side of Business 460. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) in 1980. [4] The Buffalo Presbyterian Church was listed on the NRHP in 1995. [4]

This town was a stop on the Southside Railroad in the mid-nineteenth Century. This became the Atlantic, Mississippi and Ohio Railroad in 1870 and then a line in the Norfolk and Western Railway and now the Norfolk Southern Railway. [5] The rail line from Burkville to Pamplin City was converted by Virginia Department of Parks and Recreation into High Bridge Trail State Park.

The town has recently undergone a revitalization process. The Appomattox County library established an annex at the former Pamplin City Train Depot used by the Norfolk Southern Railroad. This renovated train depot now serves as a library and meeting place for the town; it is a center for holidays and other gatherings on special occasions.
