Welcome to Morgan County, WV
Morgan County is located between Maryland and Virginia on the western edge of the state’s panhandle. Its modest population of roughly 17,000 is spread over the county’s 229 square miles. And there are only two incorporated towns here, the town of Berkeley Springs and the town of Paw Paw, the latter known for its 3,118-foot Paw Paw Tunnel. As a result, the area is predominantly rural, offering those who relocate here ample outdoor recreational opportunities.
Morgan County, which was formed in 1820, is home to a number of heritage sites that are recognized on the National Register of Historic Places. These include the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal National Historical Park and the Berkeley Springs State Park, whose spa and hot springs attract visitors from miles around. The county’s emphasis on its long and proud history, which has been protected from overdevelopment, adds to the pervasive rustic charm of this bucolic region.
