Pendelton county is very sparsly populated, with some absolutely amazing scenic views, Grant and Hardy are fairly small in population, Petersburg and Moorefield are small towns there with population roughly around 2,000 people each. Randolph county has a lot of recreational oppourtunities and has Elkins, the regional economic hub of the surrounding counties. The eastern side of the county has less mountains and as you get closer to the western side you can start seeing them rise up the skyline higher and higher. I could probably provide you with a much more detailed description if you're interested. Just like me know. Preston county is a lot like Randolph, but its closer to Morgantown. Barbour county is pretty small and nothing really going on there in the way of development or jobs. Taylor county, well i've only drove through it on a back road to Morgantown, but I know that Grafton is fairly close to Clarksburg, Fairmont, and Morgantown but its a small town.

Well, naturally the counties with higher populations and the counties that are closer to the higher populations have more crime than say small population areas. Pendelton, Grant, Tucker, and Hardy generally have lower amounts of crime compared to Randolph, Preston, and Taylor counties. Crime is not really rampid in any of the counties you were listed above though. The highest crime areas in the state are in Charleston and Huntington, the largest cities in the state, and they're over 2 hours away. North Central WV is generally a great place to live with a very low crime rate. Corruption. I've personally never heard of that a lot. Occasionaly maybe once every 5-10 years some minor, but nothing enough to catch my eye. If you need anything else... just ask

I would go with something still in Randolph county... Because its huge... basically. Maybe something on route 33 towards Harman? or on US 219 towards Huttonsville. They are plenty out in the country, but within 30-45 minutes to Elkins. I'm sorry this took so long to respond to, I just moved into a new apartment and had to wait to get the cable and net hooked up.
