Been up to my parent's house a couple of times in the past week, and I was struck by how unpopulated the hwy 11/13 corridor still is. Seems like it's just miles and miles of woods and fields, and then you hit the VA line and all hell breaks loose! Looks like one could still get way back in the sticks pretty quickly in that area.

Several of the eastern counties have actually gone down in population in the last fives years, and so has Mitchell County in the mountains.

Mitchell County has never been a barn-burner in population growth. In 1900, the population was 15,221. A 100 years later------15,687.

Watch out for US 17 north of Elizabeth City, that area is booming now!

The US 13 corridor between Ahoskie and the Whaleyville section of Suffolk, Virginia is empty now but Hampton Roads is slowly but surely is overcrowding outside the Hampton Roads beltway. Its only a matter of time before more homes are built in the Whaleyville and eventually south of the VA border. Whaleyville is about 9 miles south of downtown Suffolk
