Wetzel County Museum

New Martinsville

(304) 398-4910

The Wetzel County Museum is located in historic downtown New Martinsville, West Virginia. The building that houses the museum began as Wells Hardware Company, which was in operation from the 1850s to 1997. The building then housed the newly formed Wetzel County Historical Society until 2009 when it was acquired by the Wetzel County Conventions and Visitors Bureau (CVB). Extensive renovations were made to the building and many of its original features were restored including its hardwood floor and tin ceiling. The museum and visitor’s center is now a site to learn more about and appreciate the interesting history of Wetzel County.
