Clarksburg, West Virginia

Clarksburg is situated along the West Fork River and Elk Creek in the hills of West Virginia's north-central region. It is the seat of Harrison County, and the principal city of the Clarksburg, West Virginia Micropolitan Statistical Area. Occupying nearly 10 square miles and home to nearly 17,000 residents, Clarksburg is unique in that it is the largest city in the region, yet still has the amenities of a small community. Clarksburg boasts a mix of retail, industry, and government services, with a thriving business community, along with many recreational facilities and one of the best preserved historic downtowns in West Virginia.

During much of the 20th century, Clarksburg was an industrial and manufacturing center, particularly in the glass industry. Additionally, the coal industry played a significant role in the first half of the 20th century. Since 1995, Clarksburg has been the location of the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Criminal Justice Information Center, the largest division of the FBI. Clarksburg is also home to Eastpointe and Newpointe, the largest strip mall in West Virginia.

Clarksburg, West Virginia’s ongoing history as a manufacturing and industrial center, coupled with historic preservation and construction, puts it in a high risk category for asbestos exposure. Individuals who have worked with and/or around asbestos may be at risk for developing asbestos cancer. If you or a loved one were diagnosed with mesothelioma in Clarksburg, you may also benefit from seeking the advice of a mesothelioma lawyer.
