Randolph County

Randolph County is located in east-central West Virginia. It is the largest county in West Virginia by area. The population in 2010 was 29,405.  Elkins is the county seat, largest city (appx 7,000), and home to Davis and Elkins College and the annual Mountain State Forest Festival.  Two Civil War battles were fought here – the Battle of Rich Mountain and the Battle of Cheat Mountain. Randolph County is the “gateway” to the Allegheny Mountains and many outdoor recreational opportunities.  

 

Major cities in Randolph County include Beverly, Harman, and Huttonsville.
