Berkeley Springs

For more than 250 years Berkeley Springs, named for the healing mineral waters, has been a center for health and hospitality, surviving threats from war, downtown fires and incompatible industries. Health seekers, George Washington among them, followed Native American tales and came to “take the waters” on the edge of the 18th-century frontier.

In the centuries since, the famous and the obscure have been welcomed at huge hotels, covered bathhouses and summer cottages including West Virginia’s only Victorian castle.

Berkeley Springs is the county seat, business and cultural center as well as a noted 21st-century spa and art town. An ideal base for year ‘round travel along the western section of the trail, Berkeley Springs offers full-service spas, dozens of lodging businesses, award-winning restaurants, antique malls, and an unsurpassed collection of unique shops and galleries, most within walking distance of the springs along tree and flower-lined streets.

Travelers reach Berkeley Springs today from Interstates north and south as well as following Washington’s footsteps east and west along the Heritage Trail.

There are six official Trail sites located within the town.
