About Putnam County
Putnam County, West Virginia is located between the state’s two largest cities: Charleston and Huntington. Major highway access through I-64 and Route 35 allows residents to quickly travel to large cities while still enjoying the warmth of the community. The county’s largest employer is Toyota Motor Manufacturing WV; however, it is not uncommon for some of the 55,000 Putnam County residents to commute to Charleston or Huntington for work.
So why live in Putnam County? Schools, amenities, and safety. Putnam County Schools is repeatedly one of the top two public education systems in the state and is the top county for student-athletes in West Virginia. Our county boasts beautiful parks, playgrounds, mountain trails, boating, shooting, and outdoor recreation. There are local restaurants, small boutiques, and friendly communities in every pocket of the county. Although one of the fastest-growing counties in the state, it is still one of the safest, too!
