"Country roads, take me home" John Denver

According to Graphiq, Hanover County is the “cheapest” county in Virginia. What they mean is that land in Hanover is the most affordable in the state. At an average price per square foot of only 18 cents, you can find some good acreage for your country estate. When you compare that to, say, New York City where the average apartment is $1200 per square foot, Hanover looks like paradise. Hanover sits between Washington and Richmond, so cultural, shopping and sporting events are close enough to tempt you. The average lot size in Hanover, however, is 2,353,580 square feet at an average sale amount of $340,034, so maybe a family compound is a better idea.
