Love living in Williamstown and so happy with the education our children received at little Williamstown High School. They graduated before all the athletic success of that past couple decades but truly received great preparation for college and life.

I agree with much of the list. Having grown up in Ripley I can confirm that it’s a great small town to live in.
However I have been in Winfield for the past 8 years, and do not see how Teays Valley or Hurricane come in under the state avg for cost of living?! Taxes and housing is much more expensive here than most areas of the state. Though the quality of life here is pretty good in comparison.

I guess is being cheap to live is the important consideration, the list makes sense, but they sure glossed over some great places to live. I don't think they correlated their data with actual live visits.

I lived in Scott Depot in the 1970s. How is that area doing now?

Scott Depot has grown tremendously. It’s basically one continuous city from Scott Depot to Culloden now. It was aided in growth when the new I-64/Rt 35 interchange went in. Teays Valley is basically full. New growth is going up Rt 35, Winfield, and Fraziers Bottom.

When my family moved to Scott Depot at the end of 1972, the only businesses in the area were the 2 truck stops on either side of I-64 (Union 76 and Amoco) and a Heck's/Rite Aid/and another store in a small strip mall along I-64.

That entire area is a bustling city now, with a population of over 13k

I wouldn't want to live in Follansbee it isn't very nice and has industrial blight all around it. Maybe in the hills east out of town but Follansbee itself? No thanks.
