Hurley is an unincorporated community in Buchanan County, Virginia located at the convergence of County Routes 643, 646, 650, and 697, a short distance from the Kentucky and West Virginia state lines.

History

The Hurley post office was established in 1893. The community was probably named for Samuel Robert Hurley, a pioneer settler.

Hurley suffered devastating floods in 2002 which nearly wiped out the town. The recovery efforts resulted in an FBI and IRS investigation into alleged corruption surrounding the use of government funds.
