Experience Central City's History
More than 125 years ago, four entrepreneurs saw an opportunity at the midpoint of two growing railroad towns, Kenova and Huntington, WV. Central City established factories that made everyday items from raw materials in order to capitalize on the rich natural resources in the region. Coal, timber, and ore were brought on the railroad and transformed into glassware, building materials, portrait frames, beer barrels, and more! The town boomed with manufacturing and developed a thriving community of smaller businesses that served factory workers and their families.
