Moundsville is the 17th largest city in West Virginia. Large enough to have many opportunites, but small enough to have that small town feeling. It is nestled in the northern panhandle and has a growing family-based community rich in heritage and history. Deriving its name from the many Adena Indian burial mounds constructed more than 2,000 years ago. Moundsville is home to the largest conical burial mound in North America. Moundsville is not only a land of sacred pasts, but of promising futures. Moundsville is a melting pot of a historic business district, a strong blue-collar workforce, bountiful heritage, quaint neighborhoods, and beautiful landscapes.
