Discover Historic Shinnston

Your Home In the Hills

Welcome to the City of Shinnston, and thank you for visiting our website!

This is an exciting time in Shinnston with many development projects in progress to invigorate and revitalize our great city.

Much like our neighboring cities, Shinnston is shifting from an industrial-based economy to a creative-class economy, and we remain committed to moving forward with progress and innovation. 

 I am committed to advancing the natural, cultural, creative, and intellectual strengths of Shinnston and transforming those characteristics into sustainable and positive developments that will benefit our residents for many generations.

 From the ongoing redevelopment of our park system, infrastructure and creating a user friendly community by instilling partnerships with the various entities in the city, county and state, we have made Shinnston a viable community.  These partnerships have created great opportunities in Shinnston.  We are constantly striving to create a family friendly atmosphere and a place for families to live.  With this concept we hope to increase our customer base that will allow opportunities for new and existing businesses to thrive and exist.  So, if you are looking to relocate your family or business, Shinnston is your place. 

Again, thank you for visiting our website and we hope to see you soon.

Patrick A. Kovalck

Mayor, City of Shinnston, WV
