A Message from Mayor Karos
The City of Martinsburg, recognized as the "fastest growing City in the State" is known as the "Gateway to the Shenandoah Valley." Located in the heart of the Eastern Panhandle, the City serves as the county seat to Berkeley County.
The City of Martinsburg is proud of the services provided to residents and businesses and its recognition of housing and commercial developments. Downtown revitalization, interstate/highway corridor commerce and agricultural activity, along with strong community values and commitment, open the "welcome" mat for visitors and companies looking to locate in our wonderful City. Recent developments in infrastructure improvements (water, sewer and highways) and growth through annexation will allow Martinsburg to continue to be the leader in the Quad-State area.
The City of Martinsburg is experiencing economic growth due to its proximity to Washington, DC and Baltimore, MD metropolitan areas, yet offers the serenity of small town living. The City of Martinsburg also provides for several recreational, cultural and arts activities. War Memorial Park, in particular, is host to swimming, entertainment and fairs and festivals throughout the year. Several other parks provide for youth activities as well. The Apollo Theatre, The Arts Centre, Belle Boyd House, Adam Stephen House and the Apple Harvest Festival provide for year-round culture and arts, historic sites and tourism for the community and visitors.
The City of Martinsburg is pleased to provide an opportunity for citizens to communicate electronically and participate in their local government. The City of Martinsburg is located in the heart of downtown at 232 North Queen Street, Martinsburg, West Virginia 25401. For inquiries or questions you may contact City Hall at (304) 264-2131.
