Marion County has quite a storied past and we are currently developing our future. Coal production has remained healthy and stable and the oil and gas industry has been making substantial investments in the county and region. We are located in the north central region of West Virginia with a population of roughly 56,000. Our voters have approved levies for our parks, public library and transit systems. These levies allow a small percentage of their taxes to provide and maintain these three vital services to our community.
