North-Central West Virginia (sometimes known as "Mountaineer Country") is a region of the U.S. State of West Virginia. The region's largest city is Morgantown.



These counties are sometimes also included into the region depending on who is asked.

Wetzel County would not be part of the region because not only does the county border Ohio, but also many West Virginians largely consider Wetzel County to be a part of the Northern Panhandle region, even though it does not lie within the actual "Panhandle." [1]
