Our Community

Doddridge county is home to a very active civil society. Clubs and organizations for all ages and interests are located throughout West Union and the surrounding county. They include the CEOs, Lions Club, Veterans of Foreign Wars, FFA, 4H, and the Mountaineer Creative Arts Council, among others. 


One week every August, Doddridge county hosts a large fair complete with carnival rides and food, racing events, mud-bogs, pageants, and live entertainment. The Doddridge County Fair brings thousands of patrons each day it’s open.

Doddridge county’s diverse community continues to expand with each year. Healthy farmland and fields of livestock brush against towns like West Union with its late 19th and early 20th century architecture. The recently restored county courthouse overlooks the rest of the town. Next to the courthouse is the Stuart Mansion which is listed on the National Register of Historic Buildings.
