Little Birch is located on Old Route 19 (two-lane) beside Little Birch River, about 5 miles from U. S. Route 19 (four-lane) and about 15 miles from Interstate 79, Exit 57. Its rolling hills and scenic forests provide good land for small farms. Little Birch Days are held at Little Birch Elementary School during the second week of August.

Lavern Tonkin and his brother Kenny Tonkin have lived in Little Birch all their lives. Lavern had a career in banking and software development. Kenny had a auto repair shop but had some extra time. Lavern opened the car lot as he was retiring in 1999. “I already owned the property,” explained Lavern. “So my brother started selling cars when he wasn’t busy repairing one. It liked to kill him because we got so busy. We sold way more cars than we expected.” The repair shop has since moved down the street.
