Emporia was formed when the towns of Hicksford and Belfield merged in 1887. It was named after Emporia in Kansas, the hometown of U.S. Sen. Preston B. Plumb, friend of Greensville County delegate Benjamin D. Tillar Jr. In 1900, the city had grant plans, issuing bonds to establish a water plant and new lights and improve its streets. It hosted an agricultural fair in 1906, and several new businesses, including retailers, insurance companies, and soda bottlers, established themselves in subsequent years. In 1967, the town of Emporia was rechartered as an independent city.

With a population around 6,000 people, Emporia is one of Virginia's smallest cities. But when it comes to cities, bigger isn't always better.
