South Queen Street and West King there are some stately older homes. Someone else on here may want to chime in on historical properties: Ex. Boydville.

Martinsburg does offer a public bus service called Pantran if you want to leave downtown and see other parts of town and return back to the train station.They run different routes like to various shopping centers and Shepherdstown if you want to tour there as well.

Very insightful post!

RD or any other long time Martinsburg residents :

Does Martinsburg have an unusually large stock of historic properties, both residential and commercial for its size?

I could be very wrong....but every day I do more research on the city I seem to find out that it might be a great place to purchase an old home.


Thanks....and sorry to the OP if I took the thread off course.

It sure does. In fact Martinsburg was recently nominated as one of the 50 Best Cities to Buy an Old House in the US. Here is an article about it Martinsburg nominated for “Best Cities to Buy an Old House” Contest | InThePanhandle.com | Your Eastern WV Community Website

According to the article Martinsburg is home to 10 National Register Historic Districts with approximately 2,000 structures on the National Register of Historic Places.

Here is also a link to the Historical Society http://www.bchs.org/. It has a "Walking Tour" and "Driving Tour" with some information and photos.
