Hailed as the ‘Safest Place on Earth’, Wise is a quaint town with tremendous history. Named after Henry A. Wise, the last Virginia governor before the American Civil War and the first governor from the Eastern Shore of Virginia, Wise is also home to The University of Virginia’s College at Wise. Three buildings on Main Street in the town of Wise are on the National Register of Historic Places. The Colonial Hotel, now known as the Inn at Wise Court House, was added to the Register in 1991. The Wise County Courthouse was added to the Register ten years earlier, in 1981. In February 2006, the Register listed the E. M. Fulton House. Also known as ‘Coal Country’, the Wise area and surrounding towns are becoming some of the most advanced for technology based firms. Our Wise office serves the entire Southwest Virginia market and is located in the Town of Wise.
