Martinsburg is a town in West Virginia that makes up part of the charm that’s associated with the Eastern Panhandle region of the state. Dating back to its early beginnings as a settlement in the mid-1700’s, the town has seen itself positioned in American history as an outpost for military conflicts like the Revolutionary War and the Civil War. The latter conflict factors a lot into Martinsburg’s history as it’s only a half hour’s drive from the battle sites of Harper’s Ferry and Antietam. The town also enjoyed prominence as the railroad industry grew in the nation and is also credited as the place where the “Father of the Underground Railroad” first made his way to freedom. These days, Martinsburg is still bustling as a tranquil town that sees many who live there make the commute into Washington, D.C. during the week for work. Visitors here will get a chance to immerse themselves in true country living, and they’ll find that there is an ample amount of Airbnb vacation rentals that will be great starting points for their travels in and around this town. Read on to find out more!
