Emporia is located in Greensville County near the North Carolina State line. It was settled in 1710 as Hick's Ford, and two communities merged in 1887 to form the city of Emporia, named after the town in Kansas.

Emporia has long been a transportation crossroads. Currently, a major north-south railroad line of CSX Transportation crosses with an east-west line of Norfolk Southern. U.S. Route 58 crosses east-west and Interstate 95 and U.S. Route 301 crosses north-south.
