Removed from the hustle and bustle of Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, MD, West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle is quickly becoming the new frontier for those seeking a lifestyle filled with history and opportunity. Berkeley, Jefferson, and Morgan counties are close enough to those major cities to benefit from their economic stimulus, yet far enough away to make them unique.
Berkeley County is the fastest growing county in West Virginia, due to its close proximity to Washington, D.C. and Baltimore, where commuters are finding the natural beauty and low cost of living too attractive to ignore. A part of the Washington-Baltimore Metropolitan Area and one of the three counties in Hagerstown-Martinsburg, Maryland-West Virginia Metropolitan Statistical Area, Berkeley County is quickly being recognized as the place to live and work. Berkeley County's population of 76,000, the second largest in the state, supports a wide range of businesses and industries that continue to succeed as Berkeley County grows.
Jefferson County, with a population of 42,000, is the famous site of abolitionist John Brown's trial and subsequent execution for his raid on the federal armory in Harpers Ferry, WV. Today, Jefferson County is the home of numerous historic sites and has one of the lowest crime rates in the country. Jefferson County's influx of new residents from Washington, D.C. and Baltimore is a direct result of the county's growth in telecommuting and high-tech industries, combined with an excellent transportation network.
Residents of Morgan County are fortunate to live in a place that offers both cultural opportunities and low cost, rural living with easy access to Baltimore and Washington, D.C. Morgan County's population of 15,000 enjoy activities all year provided by the Morgan Arts Council, concerts in the park, the Apple Butter Festival and the world’s largest water-tasting competition. It’s no wonder why the Morgan County city of Berkeley Springs has been named one of the "100 Best Small Arts Towns" in America by a national arts columnist.
Berkeley, Jefferson and Morgan counties combine comfortable living with incredible opportunities. Between the majestic natural settings, abundant recreation opportunities and an outlook of unsurpassed promise, these counties offer the best in life.
