The City of Clarksburg is
located in the hills of north central West Virginia at the
intersection of Interstate 79 and U.S. Route 50, the second
busiest interchange in the state. Clarksburg is unique
in that it is the largest city in the region, yet still has
the advantages of a small hometown community.
Our area has the nation's lowest crime rate, making our way
of life even more desirable. A rich mix of retail,
industry, and government services, with a thriving business
community exist, along with many recreational facilities and
one of the best preserved historic downtowns in the state.
The Clarksburg area continues to be an important crossroads
on U S Route 50 and 1-79. Many new businesses have built or
relocated here due to easy access to mid-Atlantic
metropolitan areas. They include FBI Fingerprinting
Facility, Precision Coil, Lockheed Aeronautical Systems,
Winfield Corporation and the West Virginia Aerospace Center.
Excellent medical facilities include one of the finest VA
hospitals in the East with a new VA Nursing Home in the
works, and United Hospital Center will soon construct a
state- of-the-art facility along the Corridor D of 1-79 to
bring the quality of life to the forefront in our area.
Festivals and celebrations of heritages abound in our area
as well as recreations of pioneer life with Fort New Salem
and Prickett's Fort. [Fort New Salem has been closed for
some time due to change in ownership of the local university
on which lands this fort resides. However, the new owner has
recently donated the Fort and land to a Foundation that will
again open this Fort to the public.] Covered bridges, civil
war trenches and historical graves and landmarks abound in
this area as well. Clarksburg city parks offer live bands on
summer nights and the permanent fixture of the Wheeling
Symphony Orchestra on July 4th in the City of Clarksburg
Clarksburg offers a slower pace, a healthier lifestyle
and an overall better way of life!
