Main Street Kingwood

Kingwood, WV

Welcome to Kingwood... Cornerstone of West Virginia

Main Street Kingwood is a non profit organization dedicated to the revitalization and economic development of Kingwood, West Virginia while preserving its rich history.

Kingwood offers a mix of shopping, dinning, cultural and historical experiences for area residents and visitors in a scenic setting.

Stroll through our historic Main Street program area and take a step back in time. Start the day with a hearty West Virginia breakfast at any of the town restaurants. Then spend a leisurely morning browsing through the unique storefronts along Main and Price Streets featuring antiques, appliances, dry goods, unique gifts, and much more.

Hovatter's Wildlife Zoo, also known as the West Virginia Zoo, is a zoo in Kingwood. The zoo is open seasonally from April to October, and on weekends in November. Opening and closing dates vary from year to year.

For lunch or dinner, enjoy American and café style cuisine at one of our conveniently located restaurants. Afterward, plan time to visit the old Esso gas station with Mae West pumps, or stroll the grounds of the historic McGrew House.
