Less than a 2 hour’s drive from three state capitols (VA, PA & MD) as well as our nation’s capital (Washington, DC), Hampshire County is uniquely situated as a gateway to Wild Wonderful West Virginia. A visit here provides you with an experience rooted in our country’s biggest historical events including the American Revolution and the Civil War. Our museums, cemeteries, farms and markets, festivals, scenic marked trails, train rides, and old fashioned resorts will take you back in time to a bygone era. Family-owned and operated hotels, restaurants and art/music centers bring our rich heritage to life and everyone is better for it.
Come spend time with some of our friendly folks who have lived and worked in Hampshire County for generations. Your first visit you might be a stranger, but you’ll leave as friends. When you come back to Hampshire County’s country roads, you’ll get that feeling of coming home.
