About Marion County, West Virginia
Discover age-old mountain heritage. Create memories among the mountains. Share your stories. Relive the frontier in a real restored fort. Walk relics of the past. Paddle over rolling waterfalls.
Marion County’s distinct charm comes from old-fashioned values. Enjoy Southern hospitality as you explore our pristinely preserved rolling landscape, trace our deep historic roots, and share our time-honored Appalachian traditions.
Delve in deeper into Marion County culture at the folklife center, the many historic museums, or the living history museum, where you can even chat with Colonial characters as they craft supplies for the 18th Century fort. Charming Victorian architecture, original covered bridges and wartime memorials still stand across the county as reminders of our ancestry.
Follow our Italian roots straight into the flavorful pastas and seafoods, or the state favorite, our own specialty, the pepperoni roll. Our Italian recipes have been handed down generations, and the eateries have been community staples for years, as have our hot dog stands and classic diners.
