About Bridgeport

Welcome to the City of Bridgeport (Pop. 9,336) located conveniently in North Central West Virginia, two hours north of the State Capital, Charleston, WV, and two hours south of Pittsburgh, PA. Our city's rich heritage has its earliest beginnings in the 1750's when it was still a part of Virginia. It was the home of Benjamin Wilson, a distinguished frontiersman, and Joseph Johnson, the only Governor of Virginia from west of the Allegheny Mountains. It is also the birthplace of Michael Late Benedum, oil "wildcatter," philanthropist and founder of the Claude Worthington Benedum Foundation.

Photo of HouseAs a small town, Bridgeport provides a vignette of the American Economy. Its history is a story of steady advancement, beautiful homes, great city services, the finest of schools, and unequaled recreational facilities. Our location at the intersection of US Route 50 east and west, and Interstate 79 north and south, coupled with the recent expansion at Charles PointeWhite Oaks, and the North Central West Virginia Airport makes the city a choice location for new businesses, small industries, supply and retail businesses.

Throughout all of its growth, the residents of Bridgeport have managed to maintain the small community atmosphere. The community is very family-oriented and works together to provide advantages to area youth. We are fortunate to have many community organizations and businesses that volunteer their time, expertise, and money to meet the needs of our diverse community.

The city government is doing its part in making available the necessary utilities, streets, sidewalks and major recreational facilities to produce a progressive community with ample opportunity for all. Our Mayor, Recorder, City Council and City Manager would like you to take the time to get to know our City through information on this website and cordially invite you to visit our City.
