Ruckersville is a census-designated place (CDP) in Greene County, Virginia, United States, located in a rural area on the outskirts of Charlottesville. The population as of the 2010 Census was 1,141. The community lies amidst hills, mountain views, trees, and farmland. It is located at the intersection of two major highways, north-south U.S. Route 29 and east-west U.S. Route 33. It was founded by the same family that established Ruckersville, Georgia.
Ruckersville has one media outlet, ESPN 840, a sports talk radio station. Although the station's tower location is in Earlysville, and the mailing address is Quinque, the station still considers itself a Ruckersville station.
As of the census of 2000, there were 8,536 people, and 3,067 households residing in the 22968 ZIP code. The Male Population was 4,235. The median age of all residents was 34. Median Real Estate Taxes were $802 while median gross rent was $640. The median home value was $111,400.
In 2005, a pair of veterans of the local political scene proposed a road that would connect Ruckersville to Charlottesville, a sort of unofficial, mid-speed bypass of the crowded streets of Charlottesville. However, objections from residents and planners quashed the proposal, which had been dubbed the "Ruckersville Parkway."
