Clarksburg, West Virginia Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Clarksburg, in the heart of the northern West Virginia hills, is a scenic town which has preserved many historic buildings in tribute to its settling sometime between 1778 and 1781. Fairs and festivals are big in Clarksburg, celebrating several ethnic heritages. The West Virginia Italian Heritage Festival has brought pasta cook-offs plus arts and music to Clarksburg for more than a quarter of a century.

A supply depot during the Civil War, Clarksville is also the hometown of Stonewall Jackson. Many town buildings are on the National Register of Historic Places. One of the most recognizable is the Waldomore, a classic revival home which is now a repository for local genealogical research and the papers of UFO writer Gray Barker. Stealey-Goff-Vance House was restored by the historical society as a museum and includes period rooms and Native American artifacts.

Salem International University, located 12 miles west of town, is home to Fort New Salem. This collection of 20 log houses from across the state were relocated and preserved on campus. History is recreated here through crafts and folktales. Special events are held throughout the year.

Outdoor recreation includes three town parks featuring tennis, swimming, miniature golf and fitness trails. Head south of town to Watters Smith Memorial State Park to visit more than 500 acres on Duck Creek. The park features a museum and 19th century homestead plus swimming, hiking, picnicking and horseback riding.

Clarksburg's dining options range from fast food to chain restaurants.

Clarksburg is located about two hours northeast of Charleston, WV. Take I-79 north to US 50 west.
