Barboursville, WV is a wonderful neighborhood to raise your family! The commute is excellent. You can easily be downtown Huntington in 5 mins and the mall in the exact opposite direction. Barboursville is every middle class family's dream.
Review Barboursville
The mayor cares for the safety and well being of the town it’s akways clean and pretty especially in the village of Barboursville. Lots of stuff to do. Large shopping mall and another one coming to town as well. Nice elementary and middle school in town. Quiet neighborhood. There is only one thing i wish they will put something big like a indoor roller skating/ ice skating or bowling right in town not in Huntington. Instead of all the shopping malls and restaurants that’s why I rated it 4 stars or else I will give it 5
It is such a quiet, quant little town. People are out walking dogs and just strolling through the streets. The park is beautiful with a lot of activities and is a very safe neighborhood. I would like to see the the elementary school expand or more teachers. There school is very good, but very crowded.
