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 Park.
Clarksburg offers a slower pace, a healthier lifestyle and an overall better way of life!
