I live in a part of Martinsburg (postal code) that is right down the road from Kearneysville on a friend's 180 ac. cattle farm. He actually owns 5 farms of which 2 are working ones. The others he bought to keep them from being developed after the owners passed away. Its a sleepy little town that is just off Rte. 9, so its a quick jump to either Martinsburg or Charles Town, or Shepardstown. There are Walmarts in both directions and lots of commercial areas in those directions also. Even a casino and horse-racing track plus Summit Point Motorsports Park. What's not to like.

Just seeing this, but I'm right down the road in Ranson. Nothing wrong with Kearneysville. The entire Charles Town area is starting to build up, but not too crazy yet.

I live just down the road from Kearneysville in Charles Town toward the VA line. While we are seeing some development, it's still a great area to live in. I moved to WV from Damascus MD around 6 years ago and count it as one of the best decisions I've made. If it were to grow 5x what it is now, it still would be better than living anywhere in the DC suburbs. At the end of the day, it's still WV, and as such you are living in a true free state with lots of like minded people.
Find a nice neighbor hood in the panhandle and go for it, you'll be glad you did.

Sone areas of Berkeley and jefferson are ok , vet the neighborhood . Drug traffic and related crimes are common in the area . Its difficult to walk thru walmart and other places without being approached by seekers asking for money . Walmart in martinsburg is a no go most local LE will tell you to avoid it . As for shooters traveling to area overnight many recommend staying in Winchester va or Hagerstown Md avoiding hotels/ motels in martinsburg , inwood area due to vehicke break ins. Martinsburg has earned its nickname " little Baltimore " sadly so ....
