The Highland Center accelerates the successful development of small businesses and non-profits through support services, resources, affordable space and networking opportunities.

The Highland Center offers a variety of office space and business development resources to fit local needs. We offer both long term and short term options for our: personal office spaces, co-working space and commercial kitchen.  In addition to space we also offer SCORE business counseling and access to our business resource library to our tenants as well as any others in the area looking to start a business or improve their existing one.

Highland Center staff and board members are leaders in the Highland County Chamber of Commerce, Highland-Bath Farm Bureau, the Shenandoah Valley Partnership, the Highland Tourism Council, and other groups committed to economic revitalization. Accomplishments of these groups have included bringing broadband internet access to the county and developing strategic plans for tourism, technology, and agriculture.
