Visitors who have a hankering to visit the state of West Virginia will no doubt be drawn to the small city of Clarksburg. The fourth largest city in the state, Clarksburg’s roots date back far beyond the beginnings of America. This is borne out by the presence of the Oak Mounds, a series of earthen structures that were used primarily for burials of important members of the indigenous Hopewell culture. The area became settled in the late 1700s, and was a key staging area for military personnel right up until the Civil War. As time went on, Clarksburg saw major industrialization arrive thanks to the coal and glass industries, hitting a bump as the Great Depression period settled in. But the city rebounded, and is now a hub for tech companies and also home to important buildings of the federal government. Above all else, Clarksburg and the surrounding Harrison County have become a thriving destination with an attractive historic district and other neat activities for all. In this article, find out more about some of the best Airbnb vacation rentals that one could stay in during their trip to Clarksburg, West Virginia.
