Welcome to the Doddridge County EDA

Located in north-central West Virginia, Doddridge County is within commuting distance of both Clarksburg and Parkersburg. The well-maintained Route 50 bisects the county  and connects many businesses along the way. The county seat, West Union, is home to over forty of these businesses which include diners, restaurants, hair stylists, grocery shops and more.


Doddridge is on the cusp of major economic change, driven in part by the arrival of the natural gas extraction industry. Two major companies in this field, MarkWest and Antero Resources, have partnered to create the Sherwood natural gas plant which processes the gases and liquids pulled from across the county. The increase in working men and women has driven demand for food, housing, and other essentials, all of which are currently being met by local businesses. It is truly an exciting time to be in Doddridge County!
