Area Information

Barboursville CMP

Barboursville offers the perfect blend of old and new, with a quaint historical downtown and the sprawling Huntington Mall, one of West Virginia’s largest shopping areas.

A Historical Walking Tour of over 30 buildings along Main and Central Avenues allows visitors to get a feeling for the “old.” One building, Toll House (1837) is a log cabin now on Main Street, but originally located near the junction of the Mud and Guyandotte Rivers, the point where a ferryman collected tolls. Another, Thornburg House was built in 1862 by John W., grandson of Thomas Thornburg, on of the first school commissioners.

Sitting on a bench at Mayor’s Corner in the lovely Main Street Park in the Village is a pleasant way to relax, and its gazebo and fountain provides a popular backdrop for many weddings. The third week in September the park is the site of Fall Fest on Main Street. Townspeople and visitors alike can enjoy a carnival, bands, a parade, and arts and crafts.

Shoppers will appreciate the unique specialty shops in historical downtown Barboursville; the contemporary Huntington Mall with its five anchor stores and over 150 local and national shops; and Merritt’s Creek Farm Plaza, at Exit 20 of I-64.

The 750-acre Barboursville Community Park offers many recreational activities including fishing, a little league complex, hiking, basketball, horseshoes, and tennis. The park hosts a July 4th Celebration and the State Soccer Tournament. Recently a new amphitheater was dedicated to be used for plays and concerts.

Barboursville truly deserves its name, “The Best Little Village in the State!"
