Boone County is open for business!
The Boone County Commission and the Boone County Community and Economic Development Corporation would like to encourage you to explore the possibilities of doing business and living in our county. County Commissioners and the BCC&EDC are always readily available to assist new businesses and new investments to help diversify our economy. Our goal is to enhance and foster economic and community development through the recruitment of new companies and the expansion of existing industries.
Your company and your family will have plenty of room to grow here in Boone County, one of the state's best kept secrets. We have a lot to offer, including a willing and able labor force, excellent educational facilities and opportunities, a quality of life that's second to none, and lots of friendly people in a small-town atmosphere.
Although rural in nature, Boone County offers excellent transportation logistics. Appalachian Regional Highway Corridor G stretches over 35 miles in Boone County, passing through the commercial and retail hub of Boone County, the Madison-Danville area, and we're only 30 miles from the intersection of Interstates 77, 79 and 1-64. In fact, many of our communities are less than a half hour's drive from the State Capitol in Charleston. Other areas of the county are just a few minutes from the West Virginia Turnpike. Boone County is within a day's drive of many of the nation's major metropolitan areas.
