"Waverly today offers a lot more than peanuts: a top of the line dress shop for women (Ann's Dress Shop), a folk art-and-peanut museum (the Miles B. Carpenter Museum Complex), and pit-cooked barbeque (Cowling's Restaurant). A Chinese, an Italian, and a Mexican restaurant can also be found in Waverly. But, if you are really looking for some good fried chicken, you can find it either at the deli at the Fresh Pride grocery on Route 460, or at the deli at the Circle D Mart on West Main Street. Waverly also boasts a public library, on Bank Street, and one of the state's principal forestry offices, on Chestnut Street. The surrounding area has long been the state's largest timber producing region.
Waverly is not at all out of the way. It's where Route 460 and Route 40 (Main Street) join. The town is easily accessible to Richmond and Petersburg traveling north on Route 460, to Williamsburg traveling east on Route 40, or to Suffolk and Hampton Roads traveling south on Route 460.
Waverly offers you "Small Town America" right next to Virginia's Urban Corridor. Check us out as you roam. Waverly could be your next home!"
