City of Buckhannon
City Hall, 70 East Main Street, Buckhannon, WV 26201

Welcome to the official website of the City of Buckhannon. This site is designed for our citizens, anyone planning a visit, or a business considering relocating. This gateway will provide you with valuable municipal information. Consider this the gateway to our charming, and friendly city. We pride ourselves on exemplifying the well known West Virginia hospitality. We enjoy taking care of, and showing off the beauty of our streets, homes, yards, parks, and green spaces.  We are known for our exceptional small town charm and extraordinary quality of life. Besides our traditional aspect of small town America, we are also quite progressive in our community with outstanding schools, and higher education in West Virginia Wesleyan College. Buckhannon is also exceptionally business friendly, with access to a four lane highway. Near future plans include completion of a major corridor (H) with easier access to the East Coast, and Port. We also have a growing municipal airport, industrial park, and extensive affordable public utilities. Buckhannon has the “best drinking water” in North Central West Virginia according to the Rural Water Association. We believe we also have the best city employees in the great State of West Virginia. Please take the opportunity to come visit our friendly and inviting city during our “Strawberry Festival”, one West Virginia most highlighted and well attended festivals. We hope to see you here in one of West Virginia’s best places to live, work, and play. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at

With the warmest of regards and blessings,

Richard W. Edwards
