Charleston is the most populous city in West Virginia, as well as the state capital and Kanawha County seat. The city’s first permanent settlement was Fort Lee, built in 1788 at the confluence of the Elk and Kanawha rivers. Originally known as Charles Town, the city was incorporated in 1794 as part of the state of Virginia. Natural resources such as salt brines and natural gas fueled Charleston’s early growth. Post-Civil War, coal production became the area’s dominant industry, supported by the arrival of the C&O Railway to the Kanawha Valley.
The 20th century brought new industries—including chemical, glass, steel and timber—which were drawn to the area’s natural resources as well as its proximity to waterway and interstate transportation. During World War II, the first synthetic rubber plant in the United States was built nearby, providing the war effort with an alternative to rubber. Major construction followed World War II with the continued growth of Charleston’s industrialized economy, which today includes a diverse range of industries including chemical, healthcare, retail trade, banking and telecommunications sectors.
