This is in part due to companies like Northwest Mutual and their national headquarters as well as well-known companies such as DuPont, Highmark, United Bank and Woodcraft which all maintain a presence in the area. This has supported total employment of over 160,000 people within Parkersburg. Additionally WVU-Parkersburg & Ohio Valley University are within 10 minutes’ drive to the site and currently provide higher education to over 5,000 Students.

Our cost of living is extremely low, with housing costs some of the best in the country. This contributes to a better standard of living than many areas.
Our commitment is to preserve the historic relevance of the area, while creating a center where people will enjoy living, congregating and doing business. We have just begun to develop architectural and engineering plans. We are actively seeking businesses with interest in relocating to Boreman Pointe.
