Java, Virginia facts for kids

Kids Encyclopedia Facts

Java is an unincorporated community in Pittsylvania County, in the U.S. state of Virginia. Like many such 'communities', Java has no focal point beyond a US Post Office alongside the local (volunteer) fire department building. The 'community' extends east a mile or so into Halifax County. Java contains no manufacturing operations beyond one commercial saw mill which—like local tobacco farms—is a significant employer in the area. That mill and others have increasingly been supplied by logging operations that have, potentially, been creating more farmable land through their clear-cutting practices. A downside to this clearcutting has, of course, been a lessening of natural habitat for the native wildlife, including deer and bear.
